Cherry Glazerr's 2019 album, Stuffed & Ready, was tinged with irritability & building tension, but latest single, "Rabbit Hole" carries an element of vulnerability, a change of pace for the trio.
With an opening synth pattern reminiscent of popular nu-disco akin to Kaytranada, Cherry Glazerr has successfully taken a 180-degree in sound direction and execution. I was originally drawn to Creevy because she reminded me of a contemporary Courtney Love of Hole; gritty and unapologetic. I personally love Creevy's post-punk/garage rock approach in previous releases, especially on 2014 project, Haxel Princess, but this is a refreshing change of pace for the three-piece consisting of Clementine Creevy, Sami Perez and Tabor Allen.
An ode to breaking the habit of people pleasing, the frontwoman exclaims, "Try too hard not to be disgraceful/But it led me down/Tried too hard not to be distasteful/But it led me down a rabbit hole." The pulsating electronic instrumental provides juxtaposition to these solemn lyrics.
"Rabbit Hole" is the debut single from Cherry Glazerr's fourth studio album, which is set to release sometime "soon." I hope you enjoy the group's experimentation with this track as much as I did <333
