Alt rock bliss from the Scottish outfit

I doubt it's the Scottish accent that makes Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchinson sing like he forgot all words last week and is just trying to get his head round how they sound again, cos The Proclaimers never sounded like this. But whatever the reason, his lyrics quiver and snap, shot through with raw emotion. The band swell behind him to a collossal heart rending peak, and by the end of The Woodpile's 4 minutes we were waving our imaginery lighters back and forth like they'd just closed the Pyramid stage on a Glastonbury Saturday night.
