British Folk Duo, The Rabbitts, have created a dynamic release in which they explore themes of minimalism, consciousness, love and more throughout their latest EP, ‘Tall Pines & Tangled Vines’. Here’s our track-by-track thoughts along with my interpretations of the meaning behind each track. Note: these are solely my interpretations that are not verified with the artist.
Kicking off with the first track, “Twisted Pine”, the duo balance each other seamlessly over minimal instrumentals which compliments the lyrical theme of dialing down to the basics of life and slowly becoming aware of the things that must be removed to preserve peace. The second track, “Wild”, is a beautiful lyrical ode to our ability to travel freely and explore the many terrains and open spaces that the country and world has to offer. “Swallows” is the third track that lyrically shines a light on slowing down to catch a sunrise or sunset and the importance of ensuring to take conscious care to place yourself in surroundings that are beneficial to the soul.
The fourth track, “Brambles & Blackberries”, is full of instrumental simplicity that merges with the lyrical tale that speaks of how magical of an experience love can be if human beings allow their subconscious thoughts to release. “Luna Lupe” is the fifth track that eases into an uplifting and melodious twist that lyrically paints a picture of a woman whose life experience influenced the duo who have a natural ability to dial into what matters most in life. “Midnight Moon” is the seventh track that instrumentally creates a feeling akin to listening to The Eagles as the duo lyrically pays respect to the dark skies full of stars that often reveal pieces of our inner world to ourselves. The eighth track, “Lonesome Tree”, is a lyrical piece of art in which the pair tell a metaphorical tale of the bliss that they felt when they first met as they compare their experience to the ever-evolving tendencies of nature. Closing out with “First Life”, The Rabbitts end with a lyrical story of revival after overcoming the ego.
Bouncing off of each other’s hearts, Lucy and Odhran are in tune with each other and their synergy as The Rabbitts is a feeling that pours through their music that is heartwarming to encounter. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as alt-J, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Of Monsters and Men, then keep an eye on the ride ahead for The Rabbitts on Soundcloud.
