about

After self-releasing their debut EP “Separate” in 2008, Blue Rabbit recorded the follow up, "Flattened & Shined," a year later. The songs sat in a vault for 8 years, a time during which the band lost their practice space to the rising rents and gentrification of San Francisco, leading them to break up and eventually get back together. The aptly titled 2017 release, “Flattened & Shined” is as much a collection of 5 songs that have been polished and pressed, as it is the band's re-commitment to the art of making music. With gripping melodies in three-part harmony over lush symphonic layers and intricate rhythms, it is avant-garde, unique, daring, and smart.
