Song of the Week: Cherry Glazerr – “Rabbit Hole”

Cherry Glazerr moves in a funkier direction on their latest single.

Cherry Glazerr has always been great at getting its audience moving. But that usually came in the form of the ecstatic bounce of rock shows. On “Rabbit Hole,” they may get their fans dancing instead. The band’s latest single shimmies with a wonderful groove, electronic touches to their grungy guitars and even a bit of sampling. It’s the type of tune that will get your head bobbing, your shoulders swaying and your feet bumping.

But don’t mistake its fun rhythm as meaning that it’s a lightweight number. Frontwoman Clementine Creevey said the song is about getting out of her own rabbit hole, to regain her identity after aspects of it slip away to appease another. As she said about the song, “I often find myself acting a certain way to get someone else’s approval. Then it’s hard for me to find myself again. I have to climb my way out of that conformity and embrace myself, even if that means not everyone is going to like me.”

“Rabbit Hole” is out now.
