Frightened Rabbit : Sing The Greys

Frightened_Rabbit_Sing_The_Greys.jpgIn a thick Scottish Accent, Scott Hutchison leads his band, Frightened Rabbit, through raucous, barroom rock-and- roll anthems throttled by blue-collar riffing and a penchant for digestible hooks. The United States received its first taste of the trio this fall, with the release of Sing The Greys, the 12-song debut that is as wily as it is engaging.

Punching through with jarred guitars of “The Greys” and caressing the eloquent ode “Music Now,” Frightened Rabbit maintains a full spectrum of sound, despite being bass-less. By the time Sing The Greys hit the shelves in the states, the band had already recorded its follow-up, do out next year, making this a fitting aperitif, a woozy taste of good things to come.

Sing The Greys is out now on Fat Cat Records.
