Press release:

New Zealand dream-pop luminaries French for Rabbits released their third album ‘The Overflow’ on the 12th November – and for the first time they will be sharing the songs in a live setting performing the record from start to finish at San Fran on the 11th December.

An extensive album release tour was originally planned for December, but with the ongoing Covid-19 uncertainties and vinyl delays they decided to cancel before announcing. They are thrilled to doing this one-off show in their hometown to celebrate the arrival of their album. They will be joined by special guests Letitia McKenzie (vocals) and Phoebe Johnson (bass, synth).

The show will precede a freshly booked and yet to be announced album release tour slated for March-April 2022.

Their new album ‘The Overflow’ moves the band further into dream-pop territory – shimmering with touches of psychedelia and folk in the skilful hands of Brooke Singer, John Fitzgerald, Ben Lemi, Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa and Penelope Esplin. The album has already reached number 12 on the NZ Music charts, with singles topping the alternative playlist charts on SRN stations.
