Frightened Rabbit Make Some “Confetti” for The Onion’s AV Club

A cover song is always fun to hear but what makes a truly successful cover is when a musician is able to take a song written by someone else and make it their own. The Onion AV Club has been running a great series called “Undercover” recently where established bands tackle a list of 25 songs that the AV clubbers chose. Back in May, Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit was in Chicago and performed a heart-tugging rendition of The Lemonheads’ “Confetti.” True to his nature, he transformed the song into a much sadder version and filled it with, as he put it, his “typical Scottish glumness” on it and “spread it over like nasty butter.” Check out the results below.
