Pedestrian Verse by Frightened Rabbit
I haven’t done any exhaustive research, but I’d wager that I’ve written more about Frightened Rabbit than any other band, here on The Bacon Review as well as over at Another Rainy Saturday. If you follow me, you know they’re one of my absolute favorites.
They’re from Scotland. They play straight-up indie rock, with accents. And they mainly sing songs about heartache and loss, but in the hardest rocking way possible. If this description fits your tastes, you really can’t get any better than this.
I’m not going to say much more about them here. I’ve said so much already, I’d like to hear what you have to say now. Give the song above a listen, download Pedestrian Verse, their 4th full-length (the last three of which are in near-constant rotation over here at Bacon HQ). Enjoy.
