Here is another little gem for you this Phuza Thesday afternoon!

Thanks to my music fundi friend :)

Marathon by a band called Tennis. According to fundi-friend, this is their story:

“A husband-wife duo who took up music as a hobby only to be signed by a record label after a friend of theirs posted their lo-fi bedroom recording on a music blog :) ”

The Loneliness and The Scream

So, huge thanks to the blog of Bangers & Nash for leading me to find these little beauties – Frightened Rabbit. They may not be all that pretty (in my humble opinion anyway) but they definitely rock!


Frightened Rabbit

They are Frightened Rabbit

You can go check out their website here

Or take a listen to (and watch the video of) their track The Loneliness and the Scream, below.

Enjoy it everybody – I did!
