[INDIE ROCK] Frightened Rabbit is Scotland’s version of Mumford & Sons, but with more electrification, a couple more albums and a weirder name. The band’s moniker reflects a nickname given to frontman Scott Hutchison due to his severe shyness growing up. Yet its music is driving, full and confident. With the recent release of its fourth full-length, Pedestrian Verse, the quintet brings forth its most polished tracks—thanks to producer Leo Abrahams, who worked under Brian Eno for more than a decade—soaked in dueling electric guitar riffs and subtly powerful percussion. At the forefront of the soundscape, with phrases both poetic and sometimes crude, sits Hutchison’s songwriting, which continually dismisses his once-youthful shyness through personal and unabashed lyrics.
