Small confession: I’m never fully confident about writing my little sum up of the bands I survey, because I don’t write like a music writer (and this is no exception). It seems as adults the insecurites of our teen years are supposed to be gone, and we are to be confident in all our actions. But the more I talk to other people in the realm of “adulthood” it’s not that your insecurities fall away from our teen years, we just get better at working through the fear. Why do I go into this? Because I feel Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits is music for adults, the twenty thirty forty somethings all still figuring it out. With lyrics like “Saturday friends, are you sure of them?”, from the song Right Ones, it opens up a peep hole into the land of “adults”. When we are teens we know who our friends are, we have our clique, and even if we don’t like them we stick with them. As adults we have the power to walk away, we can find new friends, we don’t have to stick with the wrong ones. There is a familiarity about the music of Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits, and I believe that familiarity comes from the fact their music encompasses the insecurity and the power that we have as “adults”. I don’t really care for the term “Young Adult” because it indicates an age in which you grow into an adult. I feel that being an adult is a mindset. And that mindset, I don’t think anyone ever feels like an adult.Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits get that, or at least their music conveys it.

( and for a friend that said i didn’t say anything about the band, in my best music writer voice: the music is dreamy but not trancey, upbeat but not pop, more like you have a small pep in your step, there is no gimmick or niche, it just is what it is and that’s good.)
