French for Rabbits release new single 'Middle of the House' coinciding with USA tour

08 November 2019 - 0 Comments

New Zealand’s French for Rabbits are releasing their first single since their evocative sophomore release The Weight of Melted Snow on Mississippi’s Muscle Beach Records in January. It will be out on November 8th at the beginning of a short run of US/Canada shows from LA through to Vancouver.

Middle of the House begins with the creak of wooden floorboards, a low rumble reminiscent of the nor-west wind, and a haunting solo piano. This all sets the scene for a song that hits deep with claustrophobic childhood memories, and a message for seeing how far you’ve come.

The chorus opens out into the pounding drums, and wavering synths beneath the line “In middle of the house where you grew up, saw the way that you went back into your shell, could feel the cold of your mother - see the marks on the walls, baby how you’ve grown”.

Written during a writing camp at Grove Studios in Sydney, it features backing vocals by Australian artist Alexander Biggs and production by Jol Mulholland. The unconventional song structure, and crisp vocals are a shift for the band – bringing vocalist Brooke Singer’s voice totally to the fore.

French for Rabbits have established themselves as a world-class act with eight international tours under their belt and festival appearances from Iceland to Austin.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.
