I don’t know how I hadn’t heard of these guys until they sent me a random message on myspace. I’m glad they did, really, random for one person is great news for another. When location says ” Birmingham/Rekjavik/London” I can’t help but have high anticipations, and I proved to be substantially right when the music started.
Fields are electronic with a rock twist, or vice-versa. The vocals can seem subdued by the ceaseless guitars and keyboards mish-mash. Other than that, it’s pretty impressive. If the likes of The Radio Dept are up your alley, these guys will be too.
And if you liked that, you’ll want to see them in the flesh:
Wolfmother and ¡Forward, Russia! ,FIELDS and The Maccabees have been lined up for MTV’s Spanking New Music tour in November. Acts who have played on the tour in past have included Kasabian, The Kooks, Editors and Bloc Party.
