Right from the start, Planisphere’s ethos has always been to push the bounds of their creativity, drawing inspiration from all sources and bending genres to create their heavy sound. New single White Rabbit sees the band poised perfectly in a well-balanced fusion of electronic and modern alt-rock.
The result is a groove-laden riff fest reminiscent of something off the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. Brooding instrumentals make way for deep house-esque verses, moving into the most memorable hook of 2023 before dropping into a fuzzed-out dance-punk rave. This release also marks a proud milestone for the band, as contrary to prior material, the band took a completely DIY approach to the creation of this latest cut, producing, recording and mixing it themselves, and only enlisting the help of Ross Caygill (Melbourne) for the master.
“Finally taking the plunge to do everything in house was a massive learning experience, but allowed us to get everything sitting exactly how we wanted it, on our own time. Brock Weston (Bugs) our previous mixer, would never have let me sit there in his studio for 3.5 hours fiddling with the verse bass synth, so we felt like this was the track to take the leap on,” Lorcan Coates, Planisphere.
