Stars and Rabbit drop their new single and video titled ‘Little Mischievous’. I’ll get straight to the point with this review: Stars and Rabbit are a downright fun band to watch. Not just watch but listen to. The reason for this is they emulate an innocence rarely found in music these days. They also have that fresh sound while showing their extreme professionalism in songwriting. Try achieving that in any walk of life successfully and you will have my full respect.
What really sticks out for me with the video for ‘Little Mischievous’ is the almost ‘Disney-esque’ level of fun and play storytelling done to perfection with the tongue-in-cheek aspect of the song being soundly preserved.
Stars and Rabbit have such a happy-go-lucky feel about them that if they don’t become megastars by 2021 I will be sincerely pissed.
‘Little Mischievous’ is out now.
About Stars and Rabbit
Hailing from the Indonesian island of Java, Stars and Rabbit deliver fun and unpredictable, mixing the classic quirkiness of Carole King and The Carpenters with the modern creative vibes of Sia and Little Dragon.
Spearheaded by female singer-songwriter Elda and musical director Didit, the band has quickly established themselves as a gem of the Indonesian music scene with the kind of broad appeal that smacks of crossover success. Elda founded Stars and Rabbit in 2011 as an outlet for her love of music. Didit, a veteran of the island’s rock scene, saw a spark in Elda’s innocent passion for music, and the two joined forces, releasing a debut album, a collaboration LP and 2 live albums, in quick succession. Their small and intimate gigs have already achieved cult status in their native city of Jogja.
Their new LP, Rainbow Aisle, a full spectrum of colors, showcasing their knack for groovy electro-rock as well as intimate acoustic confessions. “We usually write about meaningful relationships with life and other beings. We’re admittedly a bit obsessed with a utopian type of existence,” Elda asserts. “I guess that’s why I love music…it makes me feel like anything is possible.”
The music video for “Any Day In The Park” drops February 12, followed by the single “Naked King” prior to the album drop on February 26th, 2020.
