This May the hotly-tipped and critically-acclaimed 4-piece Field Music return with ‘Rainmaking’, a dark, enveloping new EP that sees them hone their atmospheric craft. The long-awaited follow up to their mesmerising debut ‘Celestial’ sees Field Studies explore more raw, bleak textures – the band self-recorded the EP over a long winter, almost exclusively at night, capturing the eerie environment of their frozen suburban recording space across 4 haunting tracks.
Inspired by the organic, layered approaches to recording employed on seminal records like Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden and Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Field Studies hugely diversify their sound on ‘Rainmaking’, and the ominously haunting ‘Listener’ will be the first track to be released, out this April in anticipation of the new EP.
Mixed and mastered by Pete Fletcher, ‘Listener’ will be available on April 22nd exclusively from the band’s own bandcamp page. Field Studies new EP ‘Rainmaking’ will be released this May via Denizen Recordings. You can hear it below, now.
