Frightened Rabbit & Manchester Orchestra – Architect

I’m unbelievably excited to be a part of the Stereofox team! This international project involves  a group of passionate individuals from various cultural and educational backgrounds, united by their love for music. It’s a way to discover new and interesting music and share it’s unique experience, while also helping upcoming bands and artists by spreading the word via song recommendations, interviews, album and video reviews and concert photos. 

Take a listen and check out my full article on the beautiful, acoustic collaboration of Frightened Rabbit & Manchester Orchestra, “Architect” here, as well as an excerpt below.

Architect

Who doesn’t love Record Store Day? Especially when it incites collaborations between two amazing artists like Frightened Rabbit frontman, Scott Hutchinson and Manchester Orchestra leading man, Andy Hull. Ironically, the two musicians have never met in person, but via a “string of emails and texts,” they teamed up to bring “Architect” to our ears, making it actually feel more like Christmas, than Record Store Day.

I fell in love with its melancholy vibe from Hutchinson’s opening whisper.  Between his thick, husky accent and Hull’s raw, slightly strained vocals, the two switch back and forth, harmonizing the emotive lyrics over only an acoustic strum, perfectly capturing that bittersweet essence.
