Frightened Rabbit was suggested by a friend of mine and I’m glad he suggested it. This Scottish indie five piece band creates thought-evoking music with a mixture of calm and intense music. As you can see each member of the band all play more than one instrument- everyone works incredibly well together to accommodate for each other and as a result they make music that flows with each of their own instruments. This is despite the initial band being a one person band with the rest of the members joining in at various times from 2003 onwards.

You’ve got :
Scott Hutchison- Lead Vocalist, Rhythm Guitarist and Lyricist (Joined 2003)
Billy Kennedy- Lead Guitarist, Keyboards, Backing Vocalist and Bassist (Joined 2005)
Andy Monaghan- Guitarist, Keyboardist, Backing Vocalist (Joined 2008)
Grant Hutchison- Drummer, Backing Vocalist and Percussionist (Joined 2004)
Gordon Skene- Keyboardist, Guitarist, Backing Vocalist (Joined 2009)

They were recently in Australia for the Laneway festivals promoting the very soon to be released album “Winter of Mixed Drinks” (available for pre-order on their various websites). Past albums you should definitely find and buy are “Sing the Greys” (2006) and “The Midnight Organ Fight” (2008).
