Debut LP ‘Spirits’ Out Now!

Brooke & John

French for Rabbits hail from the remote natural setting of Waikuku Beach, in NZ’s South Island. Vocalist Brooke Singer expresses intimate narratives against the cast of the damp colonial cold; her voice delicately steeled against John Fitzgerald’s winsome guitar lines, and the eerie instrumentation of their bandmates. It’s a weather-beaten dreamscape, nostalgic for warmth and hopefully lilting towards sunnier climes.

While the warm instrumentation lends itself to pleasant comparisons with the Paisley West Coast pop-rock styling’s of bands like Mazzy Star, French for Rabbits are infused with a cold, brooding gaze evident through carefully decaying beats and glacial guitars akin to Laura Marling or Daughter on opiates.

Their debut LP ‘Spirits’ was released on the 27th of October on Lefse Records, and on the 31 October on diligent indie label Home Alone Music. The release coincided with an extensive tour in October – November 2014, where the opened for Danish chanteuse Agnes Obel in some of the most beautiful concert halls through Europe.
