Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Sunday 5th November 2017
French for Rabbits hail from Waikuku Beach, a small settlement in New Zealand’s South Island. They play music that drifts on the edge of fragility, but expands out into washing layers of ethereal, nostalgic dream-pop. Vocalist and primary songwriter, Brooke Singer, expresses intimate narratives against the cast of the damp colonial cold; her voice delicately steeled against John Fitzgerald’s winsome guitar lines, and the eerie instrumentation of their band mates. It’s a weather-beaten dreamscape, nostalgic for warmth and hopefully lilting towards sunnier climes.
