A while back when Frightened Rabbit were holed up frantically writing for their new album the Hand Held Cine Club boys filmed this acoustic version of what was later to become Boxing Night.
Here’s what Scott had to say about the track & video in question…
‘Boxing Night took around 6 years to get to where it now sits (alone, drinking, in its pants probably). It just never quite worked, mostly because the verse melody was a fairly strong hook, and I struggled for a long time to find a chorus to match it.
So for years it was just a dull, one dimensional run through a bleak night I had one winter. The latest version was worked up from the re-write we did whilst we were demo-ing in a house in the Scottish Borders last year.
The same session that spawned Scottish Winds. We filmed this little video shortly after that re-write, just outside the back door of the house. Some of the lyrics have changed a bit since, but like I said, this one’s been constantly evolving. I’m pleased that its finally ‘done”
