White Rabbits are a six member band featuring two drummers and a piano player that bang out what they refer to as “honky tonk calypso” music. Their cheerful blend of calypso, reggae and ska rhythms, plus secondhand music hall influences and big pop hooks serve to create an upbeat, highly danceable sound. Their first album, Fort Nightly was released to rave reviews. With the release of 2009’s It’s Frightening, the band raises the bar and creates a sound that SPIN describes as, “no frills rhythms peppered with jarring sonics.”
