Even the best summers seem like distant dreams when winter comes – rose tinted and faded like old photographs. Wellington dream-pop duo French for Rabbits will be touring New Zealand this January and February for a combination of a twelve-concert tour and summer swims through the cities and smaller places of the North and South.
This will be the second New Zealand summer tour for French for Rabbits bookending a year spent recording their debut album (due out in 2014) and touring through Europe for the first time. The successful tour took them across the continent performing nearly fifty shows through the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, the Netherlands, and France.
For this tour, they will be joined at a number of the shows by their new band, with Hikurangi Scheverin-Kaa (City oh Sigh) on drums, and Ben Wood (Trinity Roots, Newtown Rocksteady) playing bass and singing harmonies.
A note: if you enjoy slightly odd, sometimes witty banter and/or nostalgia-laced songs, melancholic dreamscapes and mesmerizing songsmithery – please come
