FIELD MUSIC Follow Their Recent Album With A New Single – ‘SOMEPLACE DANGEROUS’

New sonic impulses

10 September 2021

Band: FIELD MUSIC (Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, UK)
Key members: Synth-pop dreamers David and Peter Brewis
from the banks of the River Wear to your ears.
Active: Since 2004

Only a few months ago FIELD MUSIC  released their 8th full length
titled new album Flat White Moon. But the duo is still hungry and
brings us a new 4-track EP called Last Shot soon. More info here.

The lead single SOMEPLACE DANGEROUS “is a story of a change of
circumstances and fear of that change. It’s a move to a new place where
all the old certainties, of the future and the sense of self, are questioned
by a series of seemingly banal domestic images,
” says band member
Peter Brewis.

As with many field music they have their
own wayward way to get under your skin.

Chameleon Duo FIELD MUSIC Rolls On New Track ‘DO ME A FAVOUR’ From Upcoming LP

New sonic impulses…

15 APRIL 2021

Early this year British brotherly indie mavericks FIELD MUSIC from
Sunderland – who started their journey back in 2004 – announced
their 8th longplayer, titled FLAT WHITE MOON.

Out next week, 23 April.

We got three tasters so far (all together on Spotify below):
‘Orion From The Street, ‘No Pressure’ and ‘Not When You’re In Love.

And we can shake and swing to another track.

David Brewis about DO ME A FAVOUR: “I wanted to write something that
was really simple and direct — something which didn’t require any interpretation,
and that in itself is probably a bit unusual for us. I wrote it thinking about my daughter
who was deep into her terrible twos at the time but I hope it works as an all-purpose
song of love and obligation, whenever you feel that you’re doing all the work to hold
things together and you just need a tiny bit of help.”

Field Music show their chameleon skills again. They can switch easily from one
vibe to an entirely different one in an eye blink. This time they come up with this straightforward rocker that gets under your skin from the get-go. No special effects,
just movin’ and groovin’. Yeah!

Let’s roll

All four shared

Indie Mavericks FIELD MUSIC Share Sparkling Single From New LP

14 January 2021

Indie mavericks FIELD MUSIC from Sunderland, UK started their musical
journey back in 2004 and scored seven longplayers so far. And number
eight is coming sometime this year.

Ahead of it comes sparkling lead-single ORION FROM THE STREET.

“I wrote it in a daze. It’s full of accidental quotes and allusions — the first couple of lines I overheard in a Cary Grant documentary but they sum up the whole song — how intense impressions of love, hate, grief and guilt can be an almost hallucinatory experience” says
the band’s David Brewis.

Orion From The Street spins on and on, with fizzing synths and a steadfast bass beat triggering one of your feet’s up and down movement. Add floating, harmonious vocals
and you have a chirpy pop doozy to wake up to in the morning.

‘MAKING A NEW WORLD’ – Brand New LP By British Pop Explorers FIELD MUSIC…

Old and new albums to make your day

10 January 2020

British pop explorers FIELD MUSIC, formed in 2004, with the brothers David Brewis and Peter Brewis as the core members, released their seventh album called ‘MAKING A NEW WORLD‘ today.

A truly special project as it is a 19-track concept longplayer about the aftermath of World War I. The idea originated after a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London. Lyrically the record covers a weird variety of unexpected topics such as gender reassignment, traffic control, sanitary napkins, Dadaism and all sort of stories about what occurred during and after World War I. Sonically it’s an exciting discovery journey. From cinematic soundscapes to funky pop tunes and plenty of diverse venturesome musicality in between. A compelling and bold enterprise that needs several spins in order to uncover the multiple and at times complex layers of the whole picture.
