Having toured throughout Europe and the USA, supporting the likes of Agnes Obel, Lorde and Marlon Williams, and playing the festival circuit, dream-pop luminaries French for Rabbits are the creators of some of New Zealand’s most hauntingly ethereal music.

Fronted by the delicately voiced Brooke Singer, the band’s emotionally intelligent music is evocative of land and sea, awash with glistening layers and unexpected tangents.

Propelled along by the intricate instrumentation of guitarist John Fitzgerald, drummer Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa, and multi-instrumentalists Ben Lemi (Trinity Roots) and Penelope Esplin (Grawlixes, Dam Dans), their songs cleverly and compassionately explore the political and the everyday with fragility, sideways humour and optimism.

This show will preview new material from the band’s forthcoming album under the starry atmosphere of The Civic Club, which promises to be the band’s most immediate, uplifting and creative show to date.

Lovely and poignant
