Vermont-based rock group Grace Potter & the Nocturnals has a new music video for their cover of Jefferson Airplanes White Rabbit (featured on the Almost Alice Soundtrack) and its really, really good. Shot in black and white, White Rabbit is a simplistic portrayal of the band in action; utilizing footage from their performance of the song at last years Burlington Waterfront show.
The Nocturnals perform a spectacular version of the tune, with Potter almost perfectly imitating Grace Slicks original vocals, only slightly tweaking them to include a slight Southern drawl near the songs climax. While White Rabbit proves itself as another example of Potter & Co.s unique and impressive musical talent, the majority of the songs included on Almost Alice arent really worth listening to. The original 16-track soundtrack features an odd mix of artists including Robert Smith, Avril Lavigne, All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack, and Franz Ferdinand (with additional bonus tracks available thru iTunes and Hot Topic) performing a mixture of covers and original tracks inspired by Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland.
In other news, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals will be touring the US this month and have officially confirmed the release of their self-titled third album which will come out on Hollywood Records on June 8th.
