Frightened Rabbit – Backyard Skulls

Frightened RabbitThe rugged Scots are back with the new album Pedestrian Verse and a new single that shows off the best of Frightened Rabbit’s song-writing talents. Backyard Skulls is almost “pop”-like in its structure and score but the heavy guitars and jittery, fleeting synths ensure that it is definitely not! The chorus hosts one of those melodies which is so simple and anthemic that you’re made to wonder why no one has done it before. The album itself boasts a strong clutch of songs that are big but not overwhelming, honest but not overly emotional. It’s not yet stadium rock, but it’s definitely close.
