Live Video: Frightened Rabbit

Photo by Alex Crick

In this gray rain-soaked landscape, The Winter of Mixed Drinks (on FatCat) might very well be the Seattlelite’s anthem for the next 4-6 months. But self-medication aside, Frightened Rabbit exhibits more than just your average meat & potatoes indie band. Their understated pop-sensibilities reflect that of the R.E.M. and Counting Crows of yesteryears. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.

With jangly guitars and heart-on-sleeve lyrics, the Scottish natives don’t use glitz and glamor to pull in their listeners. Just rich harmonious tracks and serious lyrics that hit deep and stick with you, even after the album is over. Frontman Scott Hutchison says the band’s latest album is all about “pushing yourself out to the edge of things and being alone, feeling lost and not knowing where you are.”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s a little more serious a listen than Weezer’s newest, Lost-inspired effort, Hurley.

Did I mentioned they stopped by KEXP for a lovely four song session in-studio? Check out the videos:
