Won’t Say Rabbit – “Just a Prisoner”


New Jersey-based band Won’t Say Rabbit compels with a no-frills rock charisma on “Just a Prisoner,” lamenting on the state of modern existence within a punchy rock and punk intertwining. “I’m just a prisoner of time, where nobody knows right from wrong,” Beth’s punk-ready vocal intensity lets out. “What do you do when you’re the last of a dying breed?” Feelings of angst and anxiety are palpable with a poignant modernity, set aptly within a dynamic punk-rock aesthetical fitting.

We live in a world “where people think about #1,” and tend to emphasize personal ego over the greater goods — and “Just a Prisoner” channels such frustrations with a contagious rock spirit, also noting the atrocity of war and strife in general. Melodic and relevant, “Just a Prisoner” is a memorable punk-ready anthem with highly relatable sentiments on the captive-like status of existing in today’s society.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

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