White Rabbits - "Percussion Gun"


As much as we like seeing them live, we were happy to see that White Rabbits got off the tour bus for a little while, headed into a dark basement in Brooklyn and emerged with It's Frightening, their second full-length album, set for a May 19 release on TBD records. Now, we've got the first track, "Percussion Gun" for your listening pleasure.

It's Frightening is the follow-up to Fort Nightly, and features the production talents of Britt Daniel. The album was recorded in just four weeks, with the band breaking just once to play the Transmusicales Festival in Rennes, France.

"Percussion Gun" is the first single from the album, and the first few seconds will reassure you that the band's raucous and unique percussion philosophy has not changed. After that, it's all about the melody, the guitars the draw you in and the keys that pick it up and make it new about half-way through. Translation: you won't be disappointed. (All the other pertinent info, like tour dates and track listings, is available below.)
