In Case You Missed It: Frightened Rabbit
Back in early January, a friend of mine emailed me asking if I could help her get tickets to see Frightened Rabbit at Bowery Ballroom. I knew she would only ask for help if the show was already sold out and I knew she has good taste in music, so I was embarrassed that I’d never heard of the band (in my defense I was out on tour when it was released). Anyway, I helped her get tickets and then picked up the album. It took a little while to grow on me, but over the past few weeks I keep finding myself going back to it again and again.
Frightened Rabbit is the project of Scott Hutchinson and has grown from a solo act to a four piece over the past six years. They’re from Scotland. Their latest release, The Midnight Organ Fight, was released last April. It’s a breakup album and it’s carried by the heartfelt vocals of Scott Hutchinson. Thought provoking lyrics, uplifting music and the novelty of a playful Scottish accent make the album incredibly listenable. Highly recommended. Two of the best tracks below. Buy the album here.
