New Frightened Rabbit – “Living In Colour” & “Nothing Like You” (Live On BBC6)

Amrit Singh | November 23, 2009 - 5:37 pm

Frightened Rabbit’s already four-and-half minutes into the best album reviews of their career on the back of the expansively intimate lead single “Swim Until You Can’t See Land,” which landed complete with an appropriately simple yet stunning, flashlit video. The track’s 7″ release was just a placeholder for their forthcoming third LP, which now has a title that’s keeping up its end of the bargain for keeping things awesome: The Winter Of Mixed Drinks. Unfortunately it’s not out until March of 2010, but today’s session on Marc Riley’s BBC6 is a sufficient stopgap, Scott Hutchison and band delivering a three-song set featuring “Swim” and two others from Mixed Drinks: the plodding “Living In Colour” and the more-worthy super chunked college rocker “Nothing Like You,” both of which are here for you:
