French For Rabbits - The OverflowFrench For Rabbits - The Overflow

Soft gossamer sustenance for damaged romantics, New Zealand’s French For Rabbits’ groovy ego-boosters lay sparkling marvels beneath dreamy soulmate-seeking feelings. Ephemeral pop remedies, “The Overflow,” charms in calm fairy-tale regalia, melodic microcosmic odysseys tinged in glittering twists; clever textured expressions toying in sharp stratospheric harmonies and sturdy curious counterpoint from a wide sound palette kidnapping theatrical parables in enchanted fantasies. Reality hides beneath the blithe wave-riding arrangements, balancing challenges while addressing concessions, pivoting decisions and revisiting histories. Studio-treated beats lead kaleidoscopic synths and digitized guitars into fetching episodes with cinematic acrobatics whose fluid moves submerge flirty coercions into sympathy and wisdom. Carefully aware and modestly confident, the quintet connects memories and wishes to lively tempos, hot pauses and lush touches in an otherwise pristine scene.
