The ending of the personal relationship between band founder Brooke Singer and John Fitzgerald might inform much of their new album The Weight Of Melted Snow, but as break-ups go, it seems to have been rather amicable.
In fact, French For Rabbits vocalist Brooke Singer is almost apologetic that the split was not more explosive . “Yeah, it was totally amicable which is not very exciting for you guys,” she laughs down from the phone from Wellington. “It was totally fine: we broke up, we ate some nachos and then went for a bike ride. Now we are friends.”
Nevertheless, the split was something that Singer wanted to address on the dream popsters’ second full-length album The Weight Of Melted Snow, which is out this month. It also explains the long wait between their new record and their acclaimed debut Spirits, which was released at the end of 2014.
