MP3: Frightened Rabbit – “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”
I needed a hug after Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit performed in Sydney recently. There was more sweat, struggle and emotional turmoil in their performance than a tear-jerking, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season finale – and it had a better soundtrack.
If you missed it, there’s no need to cry. You’ll be reduced to a quivering wreck anyway, once you hear their new album ‘The Winter Of Mixed Drinks’ which just hit shelves. It’s as epic as Mumford (plenty of f-bombs too) as lyrically lush as The National, and – best of all – it manages to hit these dramatic heights, without ever sinking into melodrama.
To hear why these guys are pretty much everyone’s favourite band right now, download the album’s lead single “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” (just click on the arrow to the right of the player):
