A magical short-haired dark-skinned voluptuous vixen who sends smartphones from functional to fried, a steamy workplace confession that takes a turn for the worse, and sexy daydream fantasies that manifest into reality are just some of the subjects Bad Rabbits flirt with on their 2018 EP, Mimi.
Accompanied by animated and eye-popping art, the seven-song set flips like a funky photo album sound tracked by shimmering synths, heavenly falsetto, ratchet horns, and swaggering bass lines. You wouldn’t be surprised if Pam Grier and Richard Roundtree or Crockett and Tubbs walked into the frame at any second, but it suits the Boston trio—Fredua Boakye [vocals], Sheel Davé [drums] and Salim Akram [guitar]-- just as well. The title character stands at the center of every track as either its subject or a bystander, loosely binding these scenes together.
