Matt Fiander said this past March of Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit: “For all its size and ambition, the band never sound like they’re stopping to admire their own work, never bedding down in what they’ve created. This stuff is propulsive. It’s got somewhere to go, somewhere away from all the near-drowning that goes on here. It’s winter to be sure, but the only way to get through it is to keep on trudging, which is what Frightened Rabbit does beautifully here.” Well, it’s only taken a couple of months since he release of Winter of Mixed Drinks, but the band has finally made their major US television debut.
