Frightened Rabbit’s fourth album Pedestrian Verse is out today, and you can exclusively stream it here on FL.

The album is the follow-up to 2010’s The Winter of Mixed Drinks album, which featured the singles ‘Swim Until You Can’t See Land’ and ‘Nothing Like You’, as well as a pair of EPs including last year’s State Hospital. The Winter Of Mixed Drinks won a rave review from FL, with our reviewer describing it as “both epic and subdued, full of potent and melancholy lyrics in songs that range from the epic to the sparse”.

Commenting on the new album, singer Scott Hutchison said the band had stepped up another level with the help of producer Leo Abrahams (Jarvis Cocker, Carl Barât, Paul Simon). “He threw our music into areas we had not previously imagined,” Hutchison explained. “More than any other record we’ve done this has been a genuine journey of discovery into new ways of working in order to develop and fully realise each of the songs. As a result, I think Pedestrian Verse the strongest and most interesting record we’ve made to date.”

The Scottish crew toured Australia twice in 2010 joining the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival lineup in February and then returning to play at Splendour in the Grass. The group has toured Australia three times playing sets at Pyramid Rock, Woodford Folk Festival and Peats Ridge in addition to their Laneway and Splendour jaunts. Although they recently took to Twitter to vent their frustration at about not being booked on any forthcoming Australian festival tours, they’ve just been confirmed as part of the recently announced Groovin’ The Moo lineup, proving that social media whinges actually work. No doubt a run of sideshows will soon be added to their schedule.
