Scottish band Frightened Rabbit are currently on tour with Death Cab For Cutie in North America, and, as Listen Before You Buy noticed (never ones to miss a trick), they tweeted about having a new EP with new song on it with them, being sold at their dates. The release is creatively called A Frightened Rabbit EP, and you can see a tweeted picture of the cover here.
A few days on from that tweet the aforementioned Listen Before You Buy have somehow (maybe through magic) managed to get their hands on the EP and upload the songs to the internet. And they’re absolutely stunning. Opening track “Scottish Winds” has been kicking around for a while, but in its studio form is as good as anything these guys have put out, “Fuck This Place” is a slow building song that is a duet with Tracyanne Campbell of Camera Obscura (it’s about time they put out some new music!) and finally “The Work” is the folkiest number here and features Scottish legend Archie Fisher.
Listen to the trio below, and, if you happen to be seeing the Death Cab/Frightened Rabbit tour, make sure you pick it up!
