Frightened Rabbit are proudly Scottish, and adored on native soil, but their songs also seem to take on greater resonance and power the further from home they travel. “Pedestrian Verse,” the band’s just-released fourth studio album, has already earned a wide range of critical applause and a fervent international fan following with its emotional melodies and frank lyricism. Paste Magazine calls the album “the most comprehensive Frightened Rabbit LP in the band’s nearly 10-year career.
They just wrapped up an amazing week down in Austin, performing a handful of shows at SXSW and gaining extensive praise among the critics after the festival for their passionate onstage presence. “Making music the way God and Bono intended – vein-popping exhortations on frailties both personal and communal, punctuated by crescendo after crescendo of choruses, adding up to the catharsis on a stadium scale,” raves Buzzbands LA, while Billboard calls their set “an emotional performance from Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit, returning to SXSW for the first time in three years.”
