Based in Asheville, NC (I thought that place was for hippies only?) The Black Rabbits cite influences like The Pixies, The White Stripes, and Nirvana. They’ve definitely got that alt-rock sound, but they’ve also got a catchy bounce to their step. Listen to/buy their EP at bandcamp. “Hypno Switch” feels a little like The Strokes. The chords are agreeable and the vocals are confident. The Black Rabbits deliver no-nonsense jams (all songs from the EP are under 4 minutes) with just enough pop in them to quickly burrow into your memory. Check it out.
