Frightened Rabbit - Die Like a Rich Boy (Atlantic)

Painting of a Panic Attack - Frightened Rabbit
5 April 2016

The closing track of the band’s 5th studio album, Painting of a Panic Attack, the release offers a glimpse into the album. Although we’ve been receiving snippets of the new album, this track is particularly special. Frightened Rabbit has always been a statement- a band that’s both lyrically masterful and unique it its own chemistry. It’s a dark track, laden with social criticism and gloomy imagery, it’s a reflection of the best that the band has to offer. It’s reminiscent of a journey- from Glasgow to Brooklyn, where Bryce Dessner produced the album, it’s equally anxious and lonely. There’s a subtle tension in the track, and it’s reflective in the opening line, “I need to find someone that can tear me away/From the car crying babies and switchblade days”- it’s not a look for escape, but a look for release. We’ve been fortunate to go along with the band for the past 4 albums, and if it’s any indication, we’ve been blessed with perhaps a more powerful 5th. Painting of a Panic Attack can be pre-ordered on their website, and is officially released by Atlantic Records on April 8th.
