Frightened Rabbit are on Atlantic Records eh? Home of Hall & Oates, Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley and The Pointer Sisters. Who’d have thought? They respond by producing something well epic. A very loud voice Scottish man shouts over something one part Death Cab for Cutie, one part Stiltskin. Vaguely folky but with a stadium edge that could land them the coveted Runrig support slot.
The B side tones it down a bit but it’s still extremely emotive. A sort of forgettable track is saved by a middle eight with some interesting vocal effects that I’m quite into. Actually it’s not bad at all all things considered - it’s punchy, folky pop and at least they give the impression they may mean ‘it’, whatever ‘it’ could be. It’s as Scottish as scotch broth, bagpipes and salted porridge (the weirdos) so sits in nicely with The Twilight Sad and The Proclaimers.
