Awesome cover alert! Frightened Rabbit have been opening for Death Cab for most of their summer tour, but who knew they were such big fans until now. Right now courtesy of Consequence of Sound you can listen to Frightened Rabbit frontman, Scott Hutchinson, perform an acoustic cover of underrated Plans gem, “Different Names For The Same Thing”.
The cover is beautifully performed, as Hutchinson strips the lush instrumentation down to a folky shell of it’s original self. He said of the song, “I almost tried to ‘countrify’ the song, as it has such a strong beautiful melody. It’s a very simple song at its core, so I just stuck with that basic structure and let it be plaintive and sad.”
Update: I made the track available for download. Check it out below.
