JACK RABBIT / AFTER YOU

HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET THE CHILLS WHEN LISTENING TO A SONG FOR THE FIRST TIME? FOR ME, THE DISTINCT SENSATION — AN INVOLUNTARY TINGLE THROUGH THE SPINE AND SUBTLE YET PROFOUND SHIFT IN AWARENESS — ALMOST ALWAYS MEANS THAT A SONG IS HITTING ME RIGHT WHERE IT COUNTS: IN THE EMOTIONS. WHILE MUSIC IMPACTS MY LIFE ON A DAILY BASIS IN SO MANY WAYS, THE CHILLS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. TODAY, IT IS MY HONOR TO INTRODUCE MY MOST RECENT CAUSE OF THE CHILLS TO THE WORLD OF EARLY RISING: JACK RABBIT, AND THEIR BRAND NEW SINGLE, “AFTER YOU”. 

A SLOW-BURNING FOLK TUNE DEFINED BY MUSING HARMONIES AND TRANQUIL GUITAR PLUCKS, “AFTER YOU”, OFFERS A WINDOW INTO THE TWO FRIEND’S EXPERIENCES WITH LOVE, HURT, HEALING, AND GROWTH. AS JACK RABBIT VOCALISTS ANDY AND MO TELL IT, “IT’S ABOUT THE LOVE THAT LINGERS — THE 19 YEAR OLD THAT LOVED RECKLESSLY AND WITH A WILLINGNESS TO GET BURNED TIME AND TIME AGAIN. YEARS LATER, WE STILL FOUND THAT WE COULD REVISIT THAT PERSON IN OURSELVES, TRACING OLD SCARS, EVEN THOUGH WE’D GROWN AND HEALED.” 

HAILING RESPECTIVELY FROM MEXICO CITY AND DALLAS, SINGER/SONGWRITERS ANDY AND MO FIRST CROSSED PATHS IN THE AUDITION ROOM OF A MUSICAL. AS THE STORY GOES, THE TWO HARMONIZED IN SONG BEFORE HAVING EVER SPOKEN TO ONE ANOTHER. IT TURNED OUT THEIR VOICES BLENDED VERY WELL AND THEY WERE BOTH CAST FOR THE SHOW’S SOUNDTRACK. HAVING SPENT A LOT OF TIME SINGING TOGETHER AND CONNECTING OUTSIDE OF REHEARSAL, THE TWO FOUND OUT THEY ARE JUST AS COMPATIBLE FRIENDS AS CREATIVE COLLABORATORS. LUCKY FOR US, THEIR FRIENDSHIP AND MUTUAL LOVE OF MUSIC HAVE TAKEN THE FORM OF JACK RABBIT. 

WITH A HANDFUL OF ENCHANTING SINGLES AVAILABLE WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR MUSIC AND A DEBUT EP SLATED FOR RELEASE IN EARLY 2022, THE LOS ANGELES-BASED DUO IS CARVING THEIR OWN LANE AND MAKING THEIR OWN NAME. HAVING LANDED ON SPOTIFY’S FRESH FINDS INDIE PLAYLIST WITH PREVIOUS RELEASES SUCH AS “BABY” AND “SALEM”, AS WELL AS A NUMBER OF OTHER NOTABLE RELEASES, THIS IS A RABBIT HOLE I CAN’T RECOMMEND FALLING DOWN ENOUGH. AS ALWAYS, I’VE DROPPED A SPOTIFY PREVIEW BELOW SO CHECK IT OUT AND MAKE SURE TO TAP IN WITH JACK RABBIT ON SOCIALS @JACKRABBITUNES

P.S KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE “AFTER YOU” MUSIC VIDEO DROPPING NEXT FRIDAY!
