The new album from moody Scottish alt rockers Frightened Rabbit has landed. Pedestrian Verse is the group’s fourth album and their first under the Atlantic record label. Front man Scott Hutchinson delivers emotional lyrics that give the album an honest feel. Standouts “Backyard Skulls,” “The Woodpile” and “State Hospital” carry the album to success. Frightened Rabbit’s trademark melancholy is ever-present on this LP, notably in the incessant declaration “There is something wrong with me,” on the track “Dead Now.” This album follows a year of touring with Death Cab for Cutie and the strong State Hospital EP released last year. Pedestrian Verse could be the album that brings Frightened Rabbit off of alternative rock’s backburner and into the foreground.
