Frightened Rabbit is an indie rock band based out of Selkirk, Scotland, that has an amazing sound, a strong song collection, and an even stronger following of fans. Their sound is unique, combining upbeat tones with an often melancholy mood, creating songs that are unlike anything i’ve heard before. Here is a look at five of the best songs by Frightened Rabbit yet, and see whether or not you agree.
“Nothing Like You”
“Nothing Like You” is a great song by Frightened Rabbit. Featuring an energetic and upbeat tempo, relatable lyrics, and a catchy beat that simply doesn’t quit. I can’t listen to this song without my mood uplifting, and I have to fight the the urge to dance along – but why should I? This song is an excellent example of just how talented the members of Frightened Rabbit truly are.
“Good Arms vs. Bad Arms”
Another song by Frightened Rabbit is “Good Arms vs. Bad Arms.” This song has a unique sound, relatable lyrics, and a tempo that gradually builds this melancholy sound into more of a hushed angst. “Good Arms vs. Bad Arms” is one of my absolute favorite songs by Frightened Rabbit for a good number of reasons, including the raw lyrics and the true emotion that went into this song.
Another solid song by Frightened Rabbit that I enjoy is “The Greys.” This song has a great, upbeat tempo, enjoyable sound, and a beat that I cannot remain still when listening. “The Greys” is a song that remains upbeat while dealing with matters of the jaded heart, and the result is a song that is absolutely flawless.
“Swim Until You Can’t See Land”
“Swim Until You Can’t See Land” is another great song by Frightened Rabbit. “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” is one of those songs by Frightened Rabbit that manages to have moments of both jubilant euphoria and the darkest depths of depression. This is a highly enjoyable song that definitely deserves more attention than it currently receives.
“Old Old Fashioned”
The last song on our list is “Old Old Fashioned.” This is a great song with thought provoking lyrics, an incredible beat and instrumental accompaniment. This is the song that sets Frightened Rabbit from being just another indie rock band. This song is different that many of their other songs, and gives a glimpse of their incredible musical talent.
