Take a trippy-as-hell original, smash it into some electronic alt-pop and out comes something that’s even more weird than a single released in 1967, from an album called Surrealistic Pillow. The Simple Radicals have just released a recognisable but very much original take on Jefferson Airplane’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland adaptation, “White Rabbit” (with the help of husband/wife duo Che-Val). And it’s worth a listen.
Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” is probably one of the most iconic and recognizable songs in rock. John Malkin and John Griffin of the Chicago-based rock band The Simple Radicals used to cover that song in a band they played in several years ago and it always brought the house down. They always wanted to do their own version. And they have. They’ve collaborated with husband/wife duo Che-Val on a psychedelic pop version of “White Rabbit” that will certainly bring the house down for old and new fans of this classic song.
Produced by Kenny Cash at Factory Underground Studio in Norwalk, Connecticut and mixed by multi-platinum/gold award winning producer Earl Cohen (Tina Turner, Nelly, Usher, Lady Gaga), the song is intoxicating and ethereal and fans of classic rock, as well as artists like BANKS, Massive Attack and Shaed, will love it.
