Having already teased forthcoming album ‘Painting Of A Panic Attack’ with opening song ‘Death Dreams’, Scottish indie band Frightened Rabbit released ‘Get Out’ the second song from the album on the 2nd of March 2016.
Their 5th studio album ‘Painting Of A Panic Attack’ is released 8th April through Atlantic Records and was produced by Aaron Dessner of The National. The band called ‘Get Out’ their “first ‘proper’ single” from the album, and have posted the lyrics on their Twitter. They have released a video for the song, which is available to view above. The video was directed by Greg Davenport.
The song is one which reflects on young love and loss, portrayed in the music video with a surreal dance between 2 young girls, telling a story similar to that reflected in the lyric of the song.. The tune itself sounds very different from the ghostly, sombre mood of ‘Death Dream’; strong lyrics, a thumping sound and a lot more like the singles from 4th LP ‘Pedestrian Verse’.
