• Nothing Pedestrian About Frightened Rabbit

    Scottish indie outfit Frightened Rabbit’s most recent studio album, Pedestrian Verse, sees lyricist-lead vocalist-rhythm guitarist Scott Hutchison hopping out of his comfort zone for a less “inward looking” record that “looks slightly more at a wider section of society.” And he does so with a newfound knack for storytelling in favor of relaying personal experience.Translation: “Something completely new is happening.” Several albums in, and it sounds like the rabbit isn’t as frightened as he used to be.

    Scott told us he makes no apologies for defying genre (“It’s just honest and I think we’re doing it for the right reasons.” YES!), and counts their folk-tinged edges as steeped in natural Scottish tradition. Something else he dropped without sorrys? What to expect on their “ongoing, neverending” tour. Like, a “half old, half new” setlist, and “tons of sweat…  can’t help that.” Oh, true!


    Listen to Backyard Skulls if you haven’t — it’s phenom.
