French For Rabbits

New Zealand band French For Rabbits prepare the ground for their long-awaited second album with new single ‘It Will Be Okay’. Filled with an atmosphere of dreamy fragility, it’s a beautiful piece of writing, drawing you into a vivid world.

“‘It Will Be Okay’ is a personal reminder to keep your chin up because everything will be okay”, says vocalist Brooke Singer of the song. “It’s about determination, breaking bad habits, mental health and the healing nature of going outside – perhaps for a run, or if you’re me, for a trip to the seaside when it is very windy”.

She continues: “I find it quite satisfying when little things line up, like the way the video for this song was filmed in the same place as another video from our first album – it just fits nicely together in my head. It was partly filmed out on the spit at Aramoana, an isolated windswept place where one could go to be truly alone and let the wind sweep the cobwebs away. The video shows someone struggling with some personal demons, and perhaps building up a bit of courage to break some bad habits. The message in the song is what I would want a person to remember at those moments”.

The band will be touring the UK in October, so look out for that. And now, here’s that video mentioned above:
