Scottish indie-rockers Frightened Rabbit have gone through a couple of evolutions in the first existence, first morphing from a solo project for singer, guitarist and lyricist Scott Hutchison into a full-fledged band, and then transitioning from the lo-fi, skeletal sound of 2007 debut Singing the Greys toward the fuller, cleaner sound of their ensuing albums, 2008's The Midnight Organ Fight and 2010's The Winter of Mixed Drinks.

The band's fourth full-length (and first to be released on a major label, Atlantic Records) Pedestrian Verse, has earned both critical accolades and chart success in the UK (and in the band's native country, where it debuted atop the charts).

In town for a sold-out show at the Varsity Theater, Frightened Rabbit stopped by The Current studios to play a few songs and chat with Mary Lucia.
