An energetic indie-rock sextet, White Rabbits became an underground phenomenon upon the release of 2007's Fort Nightly. After winning over fans with its energetic live shows — thanks in part to its unusual two-drummer lineup and tours with the likes of The Walkmen and Spoon — the group just released a new album, It's Frightening. Click the link above to hear White Rabbits perform live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Intense rhythms and sweeping, melodic choruses typify White Rabbits' catchy and often sinister sound — a blend of rock, reggae and ska the members describe as "honky-tonk calypso." The band seamlessly merges tinkling piano riffs and heavy-handed guitars, transforming once-straightforward pop hooks into something more adventurous. Here, the band will showcase material from It's Frightening, which was produced by former tourmate Britt Daniel of Spoon.
