LA-based rock group Cherry Glazerr recently dropped their first single of 2020, coincidentally titled “Rabbit Hole.” The new song is an eccentric change of sound for the group, who appears to be transitioning from rock to more electric and energetic synths. Frontwoman Clem Creevy foreshadowed their upcoming album in a recent tweet, sharing that fans can expect it to “push even harder” toward the sonic direction of “Rabbit Hole.”
Also I just want to say the next single is sort of like a rock ballad but then the next music after that is more like rabbit hole and pushes even harder in that direction

“Rabbit Hole” takes listeners on a journey of self-discovery and individualism. Clem sings lyrics that highlight her anxiety surrounding her own identity and admits that she doesn’t have it all figured out. The 24-year-old songstress sings, “Try too hard not to be disgraceful // But it led me down // Tried too hard not to be distasteful // But it led me down a rabbit hole.” Here, she admits that being hyper-aware of everyone else’s expectations has lead her to forget her innate sense of self. Throughout self-reflection, Clem tries to tune back into her soul as she realizes that she can only rely on herself for comfort.
Clem recently shared her deeper inspiration for this song, claiming it is about “clawing back my identity. I often find myself acting a certain way to get someone else’s approval. Then it’s hard for me to find myself again. That’s what I was meditating on with this song. Change and discomfort are something I thrive in but I’ve come to realize that there’s a futility of doing things just to please other people.”
Fans have been taking their excitement to Twitter to share all the love for the new single. Check it out below.

New song, "Rabbit Hole" from @cherryglazerr. This song is so good. I feel like it's a tweak on style, with electronics. I'd buy an LP of this. Can't wait until the day we can get some shows going, cuz CG at Tucson 191 Toole was awesome. https://t.co/OKMRjkfwep
