New Zealand dream pop band French For Rabbits have announced their second album The Weight Of Melted Snow will be released in New Zealand on 10 March, 2017.
To introduce the album, they are sharing 'One and Only' – a soliloquy to a changing relationship, written in a moment of realisation at the transitory nature of life. When Brooke Singer (songwriter, pianist) and John Fitzgerald (guitarist) chose for their personal relationship to end, they decided to keep writing music together. The resulting album is intimate and confessional, imbued with respect, understanding, and loss. Ultimately it is an album about breaking free and letting go.
French for Rabbits formed in 2011, when Singer and Fitzgerald began writing and recording
lo-fi demos of ambient dream-folk in the small coastal township of Waikuku Beach. Now Wellington-based, they are joined by drummer Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa (Glass Vaults), multi-instrumentalists Ben Lemi (Trinity Roots) and Penelope Esplin.
The band’s previous recordings include Spirits (2014) released on Lefse Records,
and six song EP Claimed By The Sea (2012).
The band will take their new album on tour throughout New Zealand, Australia
and Europe in 2017. Tickets for their New Zealand tour go on sale on 6 Feb.
