French For Rabbits are a dreamy alt-folk duo from Wellington, New Zealand. Their songs, often awash in nautically themed language, tell delicate stories of longing and regret. For the uninitiated, their music is reminiscent of dream-folk troubadours Marissa Nadler and Alela Diane or perhaps an acoustic Mazzy Star.
Brooke Singer, who previously played in the much-loved Ragamuffin Children folk band and the shoegaze outfit The O’Lovelys, and jazz guitarist John Fitzgerald, formed the duo in 2011 after they both graduated from university. They have toured in New Zealand, and played alongside the likes of Jess Chambers, Darren Hanlon and Tiny Ruins.
Their music has been described by bloggers as being “beautifully enchanted” and “haunting, to say the least”.
