The Half Rabbits – Of This City
Oxford quartet The Half Rabbits issue another single, the latest in a long line that has steadily improved with time. Michael’s voice has changed, now a clearer sound replacing the darkness of yore. Of This City still has Editors tones, but is a rather more ebullient beast, snapping and snarling, with popping drums and steely guitars. We’ll Sleep Again has electro industrial shards of guitars and a grandiose gothic chorus. It’s the best track and the catchiest. Birthday Song completes the single, and is a dark acoustic James style ballad.
Of This City is out now and available from the band here
