Today, we’re pleased to bring you the premiere of “Feathers and Dreams,” the latest from atmospheric New Zealand pop band French For Rabbits. This time around, their signature marriage of mist and melody is submerged in an atypically urgent undercurrent. The song may be billowy in all the expected ways, but it has a backbone, too.

Connecting with us via email, vocalist Brooke Singer provided some context for the track, which is the lead single from a forthcoming EP due out next year of Lefse:

“The new song is part of a collection we have been recording over the past year at The Blue Barn, in Wellington, New Zealand. I wrote the song in Waikuku Beach last year, when we were living in a little cabin over the wintertime. We had a fireplace, and I was sometimes fearful that a bird might fly down the chimney and into the fire…! So, that idea became a metaphor for how we can sometimes feel powerless about terrible events happening in the world, when the only thing to do is watch it unfold. The song is a little bit of a mantra that speaks of not living in denial, even if we are powerless to help a situation - it is more honorable to see what is happening, than to choose to ignore it.”

Head below to listen and check out the band’s November tour dates.

In dreams feather meanings sometimes point to travel or the ability to move more freely in life. As in waking life, ostrich feathers might also signal a message coming to you. Feathers in dreams are a sign of hope, promise and peace. White feathers in dreams indicate innocence or a fresh start in a spiritual sense. Symbol meaning of feathers deal with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Feathers were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with Spirit, and to express their celestial wisdom.
