We lurve Frightened Rabbit over here at OIW. So we were pretty damn chuffed to find out the guys from Selkirk, Scotchland are back with a new single next month before they hit the road for a UK tour. And it’s a beauty.
There’s a great video to go with the track too. If you remember the live video of Arcade Fire doing Power Out at American Music Hall from ages back, with the crowd lighting the band up with torches (in fact if anyone can find that video anywhere let us know, it’s incredible!), then imagine an ultra chilled out folk version of that scene. Here you go folks, prepare to swoon…

And here’s a track from the guys too, a cover of, ahem, N-Trance’s “Set You Free”. Yep, that’s right, N-Trance. Weird but kinda nice.

Frightened Rabbit supported their fellow bagpipe-wielders Biffy Clyro at the Q Awards Show at The Forum the other night. We missed that one, but they’re on tour all over the UK in November / December, go check their myspace for details if you want to go catch a show, www.myspace.com/frightenedrabbit, and the new single will be out on November 16th through the ace Fat Cat Records folks!
