#43: Frightened Rabbit - Pedestrian Verse

Frightened Rabbit have until now been relatively unknown in Britain, despite Pedestrian Verse being their fourth studio album. This is somewhat surprising given the success of fellow countrymen Biffy Clyro to whom they will doubtlessly draw some comparisons to, even if the similarities aren’t as prominent as some critics would have you believe. What makes their obscurity over here all the more confusing is their popularity across the pond, regularly playing to American audiences in the thousands. Breaking America is usually a test of a bands staying power. As it happens, however, it’s fallen to Pedestrian Verse to be the album that breaks Britain, hopefully transporting them from relative obscurity in to the mainstream.
