Frightened Rabbit – Pedestrian Verse

  • February 25, 2013

The fourth full-length release from Scotland’s indie folk rock act Frightened Rabbit – Pedestrian Verse – finds the band making their major label debut. After three well-received indie full-lengths and a couple of EP’s, Frightened Rabbit has delivered another solid album of emotive indie rock full of skittering guitars with honest songwriting that is a little less woebegone and more grandiose. What makes this album unique within their discography is that for the first time the rest of the band played a key role in the songwriting process, resulting in a more cohesive and polished sound. A few noteworthy tracks are the introspective “Dead Now”, the triumphant “Backyard Skulls”, the melancholy “Late March, Death March”, and the driving, joyous “Holy.” All in all, Pedestrian Verse is another fine collection of songs and a pleasing listen. – Written by JFelton
