Captivating listeners, the instrumental arrangement shifts between guitar driven sections, to intense rhythmic sections with stellar percussion arrangements. “Killing Flood in Houston” makes for a high-energy, exciting start to the EP.
Following up next is their song “4 Days Sober.” With verse exchanges between Bucky and Marietta and compelling harmonic sections, this song will engage listeners with its soothing melodies and storytelling. Melodic guitar lines and up-tempo percussion keep the energy high and the track progressing as it builds and transitions through different sections of the story.

Wild Rabbit closes off with a tear-jerking ballad, “When They Rise,” singing about the inevitable end of humans and how although people we love may pass they stay with us in heart. With beautifully melodic instrumental arrangement Mariette sings with tender vocals, “But they remain in your heart and soul/ Always there to guide you/ They will always be with you/ Always there beside you.” The strong subject matter of the song alongside quality songwriting makes for a musical experience you will not forget creating the perfect end to this project.
