Waking Astronomer, one of the more exciting experimental pop groups to emerge in the Atlanta scene in years, has awakened from a seasonal hibernation with a powerful new release. “Br’er Rabbit,” a single on Soundcloud, is a rhythmically catchy addition to the band’s arsenal. With Afua Richardson’s Nina-Simone-esque vocal cadence over a percussive backdrop of a post-club soundscape, “Br’er Rabbit” appeals to the sing-a-long nature inside all of us just as effectively as it does the indie kid. Waking Astronomer proves that there is still new territory yet to be discovered in the new-pop realm. Check out Waking Astronomer’s new track “Br’er Rabbit” below, and keep checking their social media for news on upcoming releases and shows!
