French for Rabbits

“Spirits” is the soaring and ghostly title track from a fine album released by South Island duo plus collaborators French For Rabbits late in 2014 on LP and CD etc.

I first came across French For Rabbits through their haunting debut EP “Claimed By The Sea” released in 2012. It was a captivating mixture of folk with unusual dark atmospheres lending it a gothic dreampop nature. Brooke Singer’s voice and words are the focus for the haunting mystery of the songs and John Fitzgerald’s tasteful understated guitar playing providing the foundation.

“Spirits” is an even more ambitious collection of memorable songs, its lush cavernous production an even more dramatic setting for Brooke’s voice.
