The Sunday Times ‘Culture’ - “the kind of stuff that fills stadiums”

Selkirk’s finest Frightened Rabbit have today announced an Irish tour of their album “Painting of a Panic Attack’, including Cork's Cyprus Avenue on 8th Feb.
Released in April 2016, hitting the Top 20 in the UK album charts and achieving the best critical reception of the band’s career to date, Frightened Rabbit’s fifth studio album Painting Of A Panic Attack saw the addition of The National’s Aaron Dessner on production duties. The album is much indebted lyrically to Los Angeles, following Scott’s move from Scotland to the States in 2014. Taking inspiration from what he saw, Painting is often a love/hate letter to LA.
Alongside the tour dates, the band has also unveiled a raw and beautiful live acoustic version of album closer ‘Die Like A Rich Boy’ https://youtu.be/JGxyCs30tfU
Dessner says of ‘Die Like A Rich Boy’: “([The song] feels like a completely classic song, but it’s also a distillation of everything Scott has ever written about. It’s so gracefully constructed and realized, and it’s not trying to be anything other than what it is. I wish I could write a song like that.”
