Field Music - You Can Decide EP
The 2nd single to be released from the North-East’s very own super-group Field Music.
Comprising of 3 core members now, Andrew Moore plus Brothers David and Peter Brewis) Field music are certainly quite unique musical history wise.
For instance, former members have included ex-Futurehead’s drummer ‘Barry Futurehead’ and Maximo Park member ‘Tom English’ (who looks remarkably like the normal drummer in Field Music spookily!).
The current trio of band members have been experimenting with various musical influences around their current theme for the last decade, developing a certain style that they like to call their own.
The first track ‘You Can Decide’ is a rather short one, at a mere 2 minutes 19 seconds its over rather too soon. With their glorious piano-work and constant backing singing it’s a piece of pleasure rather than music.
This theme carries on to the slightly longer (4 minutes!) 2nd track In the Kitchen again with the woozy harmonic backing and a lovely but hidden guitar solo near the end.
Back to the shorter tracks, and Feeding the Birds sends us into a 1960’s revival. With Beatles-esque violins biting away throughout and again faint harmonics nibbling the backing beat.
You Can Decide is out on CD, 7” and available as a digital download via iTunes and preludes the debut self-titled album which is due to be released on 8th August
