French For Rabbits announce UK tour

French for Rabbits

French for RabbitsNew Zealand’s dreamiest indie-pop band French For Rabbits have announced that they’ll tour the UK this October. To celebrate the announcement, they’ve shared their new single It Will Be Okay, which is lifted from their second album ‘The Weight of Melted Snow’. The album is set for an international release this Autumn and has already been nominated for a prestigious Silver Scroll Songwriting Award on their native shores. Watch the video via YouTube below.

The aptly named Brooke Singer who is the whimsical, soft spoken bandleader said of the song…

” ‘It Will Be Okay’ is a personal reminder to keep your chin up because everything will be okay. It’s about determination, breaking bad habits, mental health and the healing nature of going outside – perhaps for a run, or if you’re me, for a trip to the seaside when it is very windy.

I find it quite satisfying when little things line up, like the way the video for this song was filmed in the same place as another video from our first album – it just fits nicely together in my head. It was partly filmed out on the spit at Aramoana, an isolated windswept place where one could go to be truly alone and let the wind sweep the cobwebs away. The video shows someone struggling with some personal demons, and perhaps building up a bit of courage to break some bad habits. The message in the song is what I would want a person to remember at those moments”.

UK audiences will get a rare chance to be transported by the band’s cinematic, ghostly yet tender songs in the run of October shows, promoted by Live Nation and DF Concerts.
