New Frightened Rabbit Video – “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”

Glaswegian warm-hearted rockers Frightened Rabbit are seven inches closer to a follow-up to their excellent The Midnight Organ Fight LP with a pair of new tracks, out next month and billed as a “perfect … first indicator of the new album.” “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” is a slightly elevated take on the band’s brand of expansive intimacy, and here its chiming guitars, equally lush backing vocals and string arrangement by labelmate Hauska, and Scott Hutchison’s melodic, watery metaphors get a similarly gorgeous visual pairing via quick zooms, midnight lighting, and a crowd of flickering flashlights. If this is what the new album will be like, I will like the new album.

The “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” b/w “Fun Stuff” 7″ is out 11/16 via FatCat. Pre-order it here. Frightened Rabbit’s yet untitled new record is expected in Spring 2010.
