Lesbian Lovers Fight And Fall In Love In Frightened Rabbit’s “Get Out”

Earlier this year, heart-on-their-sleeve Scottish indie-rock band Frightened Rabbit created a lesbian love story as the video for their song “Get Out”. It operates like a visual poem, using dance, light and textures to describe a tumultuous relationship between two young women struggling to connect and disconnect, and it’s one of the most beautiful things we’ve seen in a while. Plus, some of the lyrics are resonantly intense. It begins:

“I’m in the arch of the church
Between her thumb and her forefinger
I’m a worshipper
A zealot king, cursed, a devotee
Of the heady golden dance she does
She’s an uncut drug
Find the vein and the pulse
Chased it and for a minute I was floating dead above myself”

The song comes from their album entitled Painting of a Panic Attack. Though none of the members of Frightened Rabbit are lesbian (or female), their past albums have commented on the hardships of love and breaking up.
