Event Details

Ethereal indie-pop luminaries French for Rabbits bring their stunning new EP ‘In the End I Won’t Be Coming Home’ to life with a full band and string quartet.

Te Whanganui-a-Tara luminaries of ethereal dream-pop/folk French for Rabbits will be bringing their new EP In the End I Won’t Be Coming Home to life accompanied by string quartet at three shows in March and May.   

In 2023, they recorded a new collection of songs with the Black Quartet and following a pre-release tour with Chamber Music New Zealand, they decided to do this encore run of shows.  The vinyl release also includes their much loved 2012 EP Claimed by the Sea on the B-Side, and records will be available at the show. They are also available now in record stores.  

Their music, which has been nominated for the Taite Music Prize, NZ Music Awards and APRA Silver Scrolls has seen the understated group perform internationally through the USA and Europe, open for the likes of Lorde, Marlon Williams, Agnes Obel and The Tallest Man on Earth.   

For the tour, they are traveling as an extended 9-piece including a string quartet led by award winning composer, arranger and performer Elliot Vaughan (Canada/New Zealand). The group will join the band to reinterpret material from previous releases alongside those from the EP - adding detail and colour to the already cinematic soundscapes and intimate folk songs of songwriter/vocalist Brooke Singer.
