French for Rabbits to bring 'In the End I Won’t Be Coming Home' EP to life with string quartet on three-date tour

08 February 2024 - 0 Comments

Te Whanganui-a-Tara luminaries of ethereal dream-pop/folk French for Rabbits will be bringing their new EP In the End I Won’t Be Coming Home to life accompanied by string quartet at three shows in March and May.

In 2023, they recorded a new collection of songs with the Black Quartet and following a pre-release tour with Chamber Music New Zealand, they have decided to do an encore run of shows to locations beginning with W - Whanganui, Wellington and Waiheke Island - to celebrate the EP’s vinyl release for 2024.

The vinyl release also includes their much loved 2012 EP Claimed by the Sea on the B-Side, and records will be available at the show. They are also available now in record stores.

Their music, which has been nominated for the Taite Music Prize, NZ Music Awards and APRA Silver Scrolls has seen the understated group perform internationally through the USA and Europe, open for the likes of Lorde, Marlon Williams, Agnes Obel and The Tallest Man on Earth.

For the tour, they are traveling as an extended 9-piece including a string quartet led by award winning composer, arranger and performer Elliot Vaughan (Canada/New Zealand). The group will join the band to reinterpret material from previous releases alongside those from the EP - adding detail and colour to the already cinematic soundscapes and intimate folk songs of songwriter/vocalist Brooke Singer.

Elliot has contributed arrangements for over 30 records with Canadian and New Zealand artists, and countless performances around the world, and holds a Master’s of Musical Arts from the New Zealand School of Music and a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.

From the band: “we don’t have many shows planned for 2024, so we’d love to see you at these three - including our first on the beautiful Waiheke Island. We can’t wait to take our string playing friends on tour with us!”
