Concert preview: Frightened Rabbit 

Wednesday, May 12 2010

Precious as its name may sound, Scottish quintet Frightened Rabbit actually makes a spirited roots-rock sound that's far from twee. Six years, three albums, and a whole batch of singles in, these Glaswegians — led by charismatic frontman Scott Hutchison — have evolved from stripped-down, lo-fi musings on misery to the sunny, regal, and sonically thick new The Winter of Mixed Drinks. With strings, samples, and choral harmonies feeding its guitar-based gallop, the Rabbit finds a path toward arena-sized grandeur.
