Last week, Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit debuted the title track from their upcoming EP State Hospital. The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, and we speculated that it would sound even better when freed from the radio rip context.
Sure enough, the band has now let loose a better-fidelity version of “State Hospital” to accompany the song’s video. The track is particularly stirring, especially when it’s married to the clip’s frightening images. Directed by Hand Held Cine Club, the video shows hospital victims confronting their own memories, all while Frightened Rabbit bursts forward with clarity and conviction. Watch it below.
