It’s to Frightened Rabbit’s credit that they’ve made it to album number four very much on their own terms.

Signing to a major label for their new record might have set alarm bells ringing but they’re in good company on the Warner-owned Atlantic Records with the likes of Charli XCX, Lykke Li, Matt Corby and The Staves. The Scottish band’s approach to music, performance and celebrity has seen them apply a distinctly proletariat approach to rock music that’s recognisable in every step of their career.

Pedestrian Verse is one of the albums we’re most excited about this year and it might even be the best British made rock record we’ve heard in a very long time. We met up with frontman Scott last week in London for an acoustic session; he gave us recent single ‘The Woodpile’.

Pedestrian Verse, the fourth studio album by Frightend Rabbit, is released in UK and Europe on 4 Februay, via Atlantic.
