Stream French For Rabbits Spirits (Stereogum Premiere)

French For Rabbits occupy the space where gently sighing lullabies and otherworldly post-rock overlap. We were introduced to the New Zealand duo via “Woke Up To A Storm,” a sweeping and sophisticated bit of ethereal chamber-pop. There are more dreamy theatrics where that came from: Spirits, the band’s debut full-length, is a fully-formed vision come to life. It’s tender and intimate yet ambitious as the sky is wide, and you can hear the whole thing below.

Spirits is out 10/27 on Lefse. French For Rabbits are in the midst of a European tour right now:
