Led by the soft, smoky voiced Brooke Singer, dream pop band French for Rabbits, have been pioneers of atmospheric, delicate dream-pop in New Zealand for six years (taking cues from Cloudboy before them). Now Wellington based, the band started out as duo in the small coastal township of Waikuku Beach and have since received international acclaim for their emotionally evocative music.

In 2017, the band toured Europe for the fifth time, released their well-received second album ‘The Weight of Melted Snow’ in New Zealand, were handpicked to open for Lorde and topped 11 million listens on Spotify. They have previously toured with Danish pianist and composer Agnes Obel, and featured on TV series’ including The Vampire Diaries, and Being Human.

In 2019 their album received its international release on Fat Possum affiliated, Muscle Beach Records on 25 January. The band will tour the USA and SXSW in March.

Kate Teague was born and raised in the Gulf Coast city of Mobile, Alabama. She spent her teenage years writing songs on the acoustic guitar and playing local all-ages shows. After moving to Oxford, Mississippi, for college, Kate began to pursue music as more than just a hobby. Suddenly amongst a thriving local music scene, Kate helped form the adored band, Reels, as the primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist. After it disbanded, she continued writing songs in earnest, developing a rare and unique sound all her own.

Now twenty-four years old, Kate Teague’s debut full-length album will be released this fall on the Mississippi collective Muscle Beach Records. The first single, “Low Life,” premiered on the legendary music blog Gorilla vs. Bear. It’s a lush, dreamy epic, pushing Kate’s classic singer-songwriter style to new heights. Both intimate and grand, the song places Kate’s powerhouse vocals in the midst of swirling guitars, a perfect introduction to a bold new voice.
