White Rabbits preview new songs in New York

They cover The Dixie Cups at hometown show

White Rabbits played their biggest hometown headlining show so far last night (December 13) in New York City.

The Brooklyn-based six-piece played three new songs in front of a sold out crowd at Bowery Ballroom, including a brand new track which has yet to be titled.

The band played much of their acclaimed debut ‘Fort Nightly’, including ‘Navy Wives’, ‘Take A Walk Around The Table’ and single ‘The Plot’, as well as new track ‘Sea Of Rum’ into which they incorporated The Dixie Cups ‘Iko Iko’. The audience also got a taste of ‘Cotillion Blues’, which is set to be released as a single early next year.


White Rabbits are scheduled to begin work on their second album in the coming months, while their debut ‘Fort Nightly’ will be released in the UK via Fierce Panda in the spring.

‘Take A Walk Around The Table’
