VIRGINIA BEACH, VA | OCTOBER 12TH, 2018 – Virginia Beach alternative rock duo Travelers have released their brand new single, “White Rabbit,” out on all digital platforms NOW. Rebranded with an electronic edge, the single is the first taste of their upcoming 2019 album “Hideko.” Having not released music in 2 years, the album’s first single was dropped long before Travelers prompted a switch in sound. Wanting to give listeners a new look at their bubblegum-electric tone, “White Rabbit” is a pristine example of what’s to come in the new year. “About the single, the band states:
“White Rabbit” is the second single off of our upcoming album called “Hideko”. Tom says, “This track is about finding your purpose, or chasing your “white rabbit” haha. Most of us are unsure of what our purpose in life is, we doubt a LOT, we don’t believe we’re capable of chasing our dreams. This song is about someone that gave me confidence in myself. I told them again and again, “I’m not the one you need”, but they kept saying, “I don’t care” and you’ll hear that reoccurring line in the song.
Travelers is an electronic alt-rock duo from Virginia Beach, VA. Made up of members Tom Kearns (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Brandon Jenkins (drums), the duo’s anthemic, arena-esque sound was not part of their origin. The natural progression developed from their incarnation in 2015, but through lineup changes, Travelers opted to stray away from their organic rock roots.
Evolving into a heavily produced, vocal-layered, rich, percussive electro-rock duo, Travelers’ new single, “White Rabbit” is the first showing of what they have been exploring, and is perhaps the clearest offering of the revamped Travelers. Produced by Ben Mekkes, listeners get a nice taste of what their 2019 album will contain – synth pop-laden choruses, chanty verses, and bubblegum electric hooks, without straying too far off the alternative path. “White Rabbit” is available on all digital platforms NOW.
