Owen Rabbit’s single “Oh My God” is adroitly bifurcated in a way that doesn’t always happen with electronic-infused efforts. The Melbourne-based singer’s vocals nakedly waver in the verses, capturing just how painful it can be to move on from something. In the chorus, Rabbit’s a touch more stable even though he’s just as uncertain. “I can’t forget about it,” he intones over an electro surge that wouldn’t be out of place on any number of present-day dubstep tracks. But the difference is that many of those efforts start in bloom and only blossom further. Rabbit’s song steadily grows over its three minute runtime. Situations can certainly change rapidly but more often they’re slow and winding. They’re not forgotten about in a day or week’s time.
Owen Rabbit’s debut EP, One, will be released near the end of November.
