FIELDS is an Irish six-piece alt-folk band, based in Dublin, with roots spread across neighbouring counties Monaghan, Cavan and Longford. Drawing inspiration from the Irish heartland - a sleepy and often maligned region which is wide awake with spirit and charm, FIELDS combine powerful synth-driven melodies with carefully entwined harmonies and captivating guitars, to create an expansive soundscape.
Active since November 2015, FIELDS began as the solo project of Monaghan singer-songwriter Seán O'Brien, before progressing into a fully fledged collective. FIELDS' first offering, an EP entitled 'In the Morning' was released in 2015 and has since amassed over 3 million streams across streaming platforms. Since then, the band have released a series of singles to substantial acclaim, including '22:22', 'Get Worse' and 'Border Boys', all of which received significant radio play across Irish stations.
In April 2020, the band will release their debut full length, titled 'The Silence Of Staying In' - a 12 track LP which was created over a 3-year period between Donegal, Galway and Dublin. The album release will be marked with an Irish tour in April.
