Frightened Rabbit - 'Painting Of A Panic Attack'

8/10

While Frightened Rabbit have had a turbulent few years since their last studio album, the band are now looking to deliver one of their most impressive releases to date. 'Painting Of A Panic Attack' is the band's first album since the departure of guitarist Gordon Skene and seems to mark a new chapter in the story of this group. A new awakening has started in them as this new record shows a far more confident outfit than in the past.

Opening up with the transcendent 'Death Dream', the album never really falters from then on. A melancholy yet uplifting collection of indie-rock that mirrors the changes bands like Foals and The Horrors have undergone on their later releases. Taking all the criticism against them and using it to form a positive and forward-thinking sound is no easy feat yet Frightened Rabbit seem to be on the cusp of their own musical revolution.

Bold, fearless and engaging throughout, 'Painting Of A Panic Attack' could mark a career best for the Scottish outfit. A cohesive release with all the hallmarks of a band who have used their experiences to reflect the mood and pace of their music with sheer aplomb.
