New Frightened Rabbit - Nothing Like You




It is safe to say that Frightened Rabbit have dominated my listening routine for the past two or so years. The band from Glasgow by way of Selkirk have their new single Nothing Like You streaming on their myspace page.

I was already excited for the release of their new album Winter of Mixed Drinks due in March, but the sheer quality and urgency this new single exudes furthers the notion that we are witnessing a band who are going to take over the world in 2010. With frantic guitar and Scott Hutchinson's token vocals Nothing Like You is a perfect way to build up a frenzied anticipation for their third studio release.

I will forever know this song as Steve, Frightened Rabbit die-hards will know what I mean by that!

Nothing Like You is released on Feb 22 and Winter of Mixed Drink is released March 1 (9 in U.S) on Fatcat Records.

  1. It's so great to see so much enthusiasm for this band. Every single person that I turned onto this band has pretty much thanked me and felt that they owed me so much!

    That's when you know a band is great.

  2. I know. I never have met someone who thinks they are 'just okay'. Everyone you meet completely loves them, and rightly so. This year is surely their year.

  3. was a mate who turned me onto them about 18months ago (wink nudge), and i fit the trend in thinking their fantastic. The two new releases struck me as being almost contrasting while similar in other ways. You think back to the variety of sounds on organ fight and the greys however, and this indicates there will be a very solid album coming out in march .
