French for Rabbits & the Elliot Vaughan String Quartet

Proudly presented by the Globe Theatre, Wellington’s luminaries of ethereal dream-pop/folk French for Rabbits will be bringing their stunning new EP ‘In the End I Won’t Be Coming Home’ to life with a string quartet in a special performance in Palmerston North. Following two successful shows (including a sold out show in Whanganui's St Peter's Church), the band are excited to announce this new show for Palmerston North.

The EP was recorded in July of 2023 and in early 2024 the EP came out as a vinyl release which also includes the band's much loved 2012 debut EP Claimed by the Sea on the b-side.

Their music, which has been nominated for the Taite Music Prize, NZ Music Awards and APRA Silver Scrolls has seen the understated group perform internationally through the USA and Europe, open for the likes of Lorde, Marlon Williams, Agnes Obel, The Tallest Man on Earth and Blanco White.

For the tour, they are traveling as an extended 9-piece including a string quartet led by award winning composer, arranger and performer Elliot Vaughan (Canada/New Zealand). The group will join the band to reinterpret material from previous releases alongside those from the EP - adding detail and colour to the already cinematic soundscapes and intimate folk songs of songwriter/vocalist Brooke Singer.

Elliot has contributed arrangements for over 30 records with Canadian and New Zealand artists, and countless performances around the world, and holds a Master’s of Musical Arts from the New Zealand School of Music and a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.
