“Swallowing The Rabbit Whole” is available today on all streaming platforms and joined by a Max Moore directed music video. The official clip builds upon the final scenes of the video for the album’s title track, and sees drummer/vocalist Jami Morgan emerging in a new role. A brutal discourse on self-reflection is delivered as CODE ORANGE prove once again, they cannot be confined to any singular box.
Morgan detailed the track explaining, “’Swallowing The Rabbit Whole’ is the passageway into the deep descent that is the next era of CODE ORANGE… the next piece to the puzzle of UNDERNEATH. Duality is key, not only thematically on this album, but in the continued evolution of our sound and the larger heavy music world in general. You’ve got it all figured out until you’re drowning in it.”
Last month CODE ORANGE broke the news of their forthcoming LP UNDERNEATH and offered a glimpse into their reconfigured and urgent compositions with the LP’s title track. “’Underneath’ hulks out from oil-slick-black electronics and menacing synths, peeling under the skin to uncage CODE ORANGE’s next evolution,” declared NPR with Stereogum adding, “It pushes the band’s sound into something even bigger.” Rolling Stone praised CODE ORANGE’s, “cutting melodies and the group’s balance of industrial rattle and shock-treatment guitar riffs,” while Revolver attested, “the song takes CODE ORANGE’s ever-evolving mix of hardcore, metal, industrial music and alt-rock next level.”
