Frightened Rabbit is among the most acclaimed bands of the 2000 s, earning wide-ranging critical applause and a fervent international fan following with their emotionally exhilarating melodies and scathingly frank lyricism. The band's 2010's full-length, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks
(FatCat Records), was met with unanimous acclaim both here and at home. The Guardian's Dave Simpson declared that "(Scott Hutchison's) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs - with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention - have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountain...This is the sound of a band upping their game." What's more, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks
was selected by NPR listeners as one of their "50 Favorite Albums of 2010. " As moving and triumphant on stage as they are on record, Frightened Rabbit has performed countless headline shows, as well as sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Modest Mouse and Atlantic labelmates Death Cab for Cutie. The band has also won over audiences at a scope of international festivals, including Glastonbury, T In The Park, Oxegen Festival, and Latitude in the UK, Australia's Splendour in the Grass, and our own Lollapalooza and South By SouthWest (SXSW).
