June 18, 2009 Like many White Rabbits songs, "They Done Wrong / We Done Wrong" has a literary feel to it, like a page from a Richard Yates or Donna Tartt novel set to music.

May 18, 2007 On "The Plot," White Rabbits' members demonstrate a fondness for twinkling keyboards, room-filling rock and snarling but seductive vocals. Playing a kind of pitch-perfect indie-soul, they draw inspiration from disparate sources like calypso and ska along the way.
