wht.rbbt.obj - "No Rainbows in Indiana"

Chicago's wht.rbbt.obj (pronounced White Rabbit Object) refer to themselves as alt/rock/blues-rock/roadhouse raunch, and their new single reflects that sound. "No Rainbows in Indiana" has a dirty blues sound with just a smidge of pop. And when I say a smidge, I mean just barely. wht.rbbt.obj have this dark sound to their music that sounds as if The White Stripes were covering Alice in Chains. Plus, the song adds in what is kind of a guitar solo (I'm only calling it that because I don't really know how else to describe this bridge) that is one of the most unique bursts of noise I've heard in a long, long time. When the actual guitar solo hits... it's just perfection. Blues rock is a well trod genre, so it's always great to find an artist putting their own spin on it.

You can listen to "No Rainbows in Indiana" below. Whiskey Hotel Tango is due out November 24, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on wht.rbbt.obj, check out the band's website.
