Wellington, NZ dream pop duo French for Rabbits is currently in the US for a string of 11 tour dates and have just released a new single, Middle of the House to coincide with it. You can listen to Middle of the House via SoundCloud below.
The duo have returned to the USA for the second time in 2019 for a West Coast tour – following an earlier debut nationwide run and stint at SXSW following the release of their intensely dreamy sophomore record The Weight of Melted Snow, out on Mississippi’s Muscle Beach Records.
Fronted by the delicately voiced Brooke Singer, their emotionally intelligent music is evocative of land and sea, awash with glistening layers, and propelled along by the intricate instrumentation of guitarist John Fitzgerald and their bandmates. For this tour they will be joined by violinist Katie Mosehauer and bassist Ian Williams for an intimate series of shows.
They have toured in Europe several times, performed alongside Agnes Obel, and New Zealand luminaries including Lorde, Marlon Williams, Tiny Ruins and Nadia Reid. Their music has featured on TV series, including The Vampire Diaries and Being Human.
Despite creating some of New Zealand’s most hauntingly beautiful music, their live shows are often interspersed with humour, sideways charm and unexpected tangents, being described as ‘able to make a concert hall feel like a living room’.
