The Dark Arts of Dream Pop: French for Rabbits Announce Summer Tour

12 October 2020 - 0 Comments

Ethereal dream-pop luminaries French for Rabbits create music that feels as if it was crafted from the fabric ­­of the New Zealand landscape – guitar lines gliding and unfurling like salty waves breaking, drums echoing against isolated coastlines, and harmonies glistening like sunrays upon rippling ocean currents.

They will be bringing their naturalistic musical alchemy to intimate venues around New Zealand in November and December on the Dark Arts tour for eight dates across the country, including two multi-dimensional shows in the Adam Auditorium at Wellington’s City Gallery.

Excitingly, the band have promised to preview new material from their as yet untitled forthcoming album (due 2021) on the tour. Mixing has only just wrapped up for the record, which was recorded between Covid-19 restrictions with producer Jol Mulholland (Tami Neilson, Delaney Davidson).

Originally formed in the small coastal township of Waikuku Beach by vocalist and songwriter Brooke Singer and guitarist John Fitzgerald, French for Rabbits expanded to include multi-instrumentalists Ben Lemi (TrinityRoots, Dawn Diver) and Penelope Esplin (Grawlixes) alongside drummer Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa. They h­­ave released three records including the NZ Music Award nominated debut EP Claimed by the Sea in 2012, and have since established themselves as a world-class act creating intelligent, evocative music for the discerning listener.

Tickets available now from undertheradar.co.nz or frenchforrabbits.com.
