Soft, delicate and gorgeously dainty, NYC based singer songwriter Blair West has shared her sophomore single, the endearing 'Rabbit Holes'.
The perfect song to gently usher us through the transition of the seasons, 'Rabbit Holes' is full of whimsy and wonder, with unique and quaint lyrical phrases that conjure that all encompassing warm and fuzzy feeling inside.
Just add fluffy socks, a hot choc and a flickering candle and let Blair's effortless vocal serenade you into a dreamy pop land of perfection.
“This song brings together the most personal pieces of me as an artist. The lyrics, which were some of the first I ever wrote, originally lived in a poem of mine: 'if you leave me, I'm coming to.' It was meant as a cheeky expression of my love for my fiancé -- maybe a little creepy, maybe a little extra, but most definitely romantic. As if "hopelessly devoted to you" was remixed with a bit of sass and enigma.
I wanted to tell a love story that people could relate to, but incorporate the little eccentricities that made mine special, like my love for astrology and my years in Brooklyn.
As far as the sound, the song was originally a more upbeat ballad, but I decided to slow it down so the lyrics could breathe, and that's when it all clicked. I wrote the simple guitar lick you hear throughout and the whole thing came together in just a few minutes. I decided to title it 'rabbit holes,' which is a favourite expression of mine, and I thought it reflected the song perfectly. An Alice in Wonderland-esque fairytale. A love song through the looking glass.”
