This is sad news. Frightened Rabbit made some beautiful music.
Depression is brutal.
If you need help seek it.

This was the first song I heard of them. I believe. I remember seeing them at SXSW. I was so excited to see them. Sadly, the sound system wasn’t cooperating but they handled it with humor. Hell, it’s SXSW and sometimes things go wrong.
I listened to this album constantly and it was one of my favorites of the year and still visit it often. Looking back now I see the “Backwards Walk” was my number 4 song of that year. At number 3 was “Crawl” by KoL and number 5 was Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds with “Lay Down Here (And Be My Girl)”. That’s a damn cool triple play of tunes. Looking back at the “plays” I have on the top 5 songs of 2008 the only song I’ve played more than “Backwards Walk” is “Crawl.”
