One of 2008's most promising bands is Scottish quartet Frightened Rabbit, who released an impressive sophomore project entitled The Midnight Organ Fight in April.
The group boasts a confident, carefree pop sound remiscent of early Counting Crows and similar to present-day Americana artists like Wilco. Ear-sample the foursome's tracks "Set You Free" and "Be Less Rude" at www.myspace.com/frightenedrabbit, and we also recommend "Old Old Fashioned" from the new album.
Frightened Rabbit lead singer Scott Hutchison, on a tour bus somewhere in Texas, took time to answer questions from Seattle Gay News recently - the interview prints in our June 13 issue. The band performs live at Nectar Lounge on Wednesday, June 18. Get to know this talented arist a little better by picking up a copy of Seattle Gay News this weekend.
