The Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit
are prepping to release their first tracks under Atlantic Records
on 9/25, and yesterday we finally got a little taste of what's to come. "State Hospital," which is also the name of the EP, still possesses that Scottish-folk aura of past releases but comes with a bit more solemnity. An explosion lurks and builds beneath the whole track and finally goes full-on anthem towards the end. We're taking this as proof that Frightened Rabbit didn't let their new mainstream label soften their edge.
