Jared Leckie This is a uniquely inspired track with smooth and mesmerizing vocals. There is great guitar throughout and the ending has a cool stereophonic effect.

A perfect production and enjoyable listen.

James Trainer This is a beautiful dark comic tale. The lyrics are brilliant and sung so sweetly. In contrast, the strings and backing vocals sound a little disturbing. The overal result is a perfect sound-track to the back-story.

Rabbit 04:22
At the end of the day The shapeless shadow covers the sun Nothing is left except the light on your face East rushes West And West rushes down Feel that the light Of the whole of the wideness of night Is for you A queen For the King of the Ghosts the King Higher, higher, higher, higher


"Rabbit" is a song dedicated to my goddaughter, Freya Rabbit Sanko. It is inspired by Rabbit (pictured), the late pet of Freya's parents, Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff, and draws lyrics from the Wallace Stevens poem, "A Rabbit as King of the Ghosts."

After Rabbit passed away in 2004, her body was sent to North Carolina to the teenage taxidermist, Amy Ritchie. She returned to New York beautifully preserved with one peculiar detail. On one side of her face she bears a neutral expression, and on the other a beguiling smile.
