French For Rabbits Share Single / Video 'The Overflow'

Chris Cudby / Friday 16th July, 2021 9:38AM

Te Whanganui-a-Tara's French For Rabbits have at last unveiled the title track to their forthcoming new album The Overflow, which readers may recognise from their magical UTR Caught Live performance at The Wine Cellar from all the way back in 2019. While sounding soothing and centred, the gorgeous dream-pop offering is in fact inspired by personal states of anxiety and near-panic, feelings familiar to many in our music community as Brooke Singer explained...

“Nobody needs to hear about the admin of an indie musician, but I can tell you – it could be a mountain higher than Everest if you let it... At times, I’ve found myself on the edge of burn-out and having panic attacks… I dream of living in a cabin by a river, with a dog and fireplace and a simple life with friends around for dinner. But I’m also filled to the brim with ideas for projects, new songs and new challenges...”

Commencing their single release tour of Aotearoa this Saturday in New Plymouth, French For Rabbits have also released an enchanting, citrus-tinted video for their new single embodying the delicate balancing act of everyday living — directed, produced by and starring Singer with bandmates John Fitzgerald, Ben Lemi, Penelope Esplin and Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa. Experience 'The Overflow' below, created with project funding support from NZ On Air and don't miss French For Rabbits with just-announced supports at the following dates...
