Drawing influence from the wet, windblown landscapes of coastal New Zealand, French for Rabbits hail from the remote setting of Waikuku Beach, in NZ’s South Island…
While their warm instrumentation lends itself to pleasant comparisons with the Paisley West Coast dream pop 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 NZ music award nominated EP Claimed by the Sea and associated PLAN remix saw the band garner UK radio play & international blog love. Over the past six months they’ve performed through Europe (including to Secret Garden Party, Wilderness Festival and The Great Escape). Their debut LP Spirits (Lefse Records) due for release in late October sees a lush widening of their eerie, yet comforting sound.
