“Year of the Rabbit” is Eskimeaux’s follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2015 full-length, “O.K.”. Rolling Stone wrote about “O.K.”, "Prolific artist Gabrielle Smith has crafted winsome songs that read like full-fledged novellas, at once capable of spitting truth, romancing the listener and offering consolation from life's more gnarled moments", while Pitchfork weighed in, “O.K. invites us to view the world through Smith's eyes. The unassuming strength of her vision is what makes that invitation so worth accepting." “Year of the Rabbit” picks up where “O.K.” left off, with 6 earnest pop songs teetering between heartbreaking and hopeful.
“Year of the Rabbit” was produced by Florist’s Emily Sprague, with guest appearances by Sprague, Told Slant’s Felix Walworth, and Frankie Cosmo’s Greta Kline. Eskimeaux will be supporting “Year of the Rabbit” on a full US month long tour with Frankie Cosmos and Yowler.
