French For Rabbits – Hard Luck Stories

Thank God our beloved folk-duo French For Rabbits is back with a new track ahead of their debut LP Spirits, due out on October 28th via Lefse Records. Hard Luck Stories is probably one of the best folk elegies we came across in the last few years, reminescent of some eternal classics like Fade Into You from Mazzy Star.

The kiwi-duo knows how to build something memorable with a bunch of simple elements: an acoustic guitar to give a mournful rythm and an amazing reverbed electric guitar. The rest is up to Brooke Singer’s terrific vocals which can be definitely considered as ethereal, rich and dreamy as Hope Sandoval’s. This track shows to the world, as though we needed any more, how much this band has to give to the folk music genre in the near future.
