wht.rbbt.obj – “Love On Hold”


“Love On Hold” is a fervent rock success from wht.rbbt.obj (“White Rabbit Object”), representing the latest single from the Chicago-based band. Initially formed as a side project of married couple Frank and River Rabbitte, wht.rbbt.obj has since grown into a four-piece. “Love On Hold” is the first single from their upcoming EP, Whiskey Hotel Tango, releasing in November.

Buzzing guitars swell into a debonair vocal presence, exuding a seductive appeal into the thumping bass-laden momentum and flashes of backing vocal reflections. “I don’t need to see it in your crying eyes, it’s true,” the vocals ascend with a bluesy character, then traversing into an enthralling “operator,” sequence with further compelling escalation.

“Love On Hold” presents a commanding sound, diversifying seamlessly between bluesy vigor and steady, chugging build-ups. The track is indicative of the band’s strong songwriting and evident charisma, which has led to spots at major festivals like SXSW and Milwaukee’s Summerfest.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
