FIELDS is an Irish collective, based out of Dublin with roots spread across the three neighbouring Irish counties of Monaghan, Cavan and Longford. Their sound is innately inspired by the character of this sleepy and often maligned region, which is wide awake with spirit and charm, bursting at its borders with plots of parochial divide, understated romanticism and quiet malaise in the Irish heartland. Combining powerful synth-driven melodies, carefully-entwined harmonies and captivating guitars, the band bring energy and ambience together to make for a compelling journey.
FIELDS will release their debut record titled ‘Postcolonial’ in 2019. The 12-track LP will feature singles ‘Get Worse’ and ‘Border Boys’, with further track releases expected over the coming months.
Remy Connolly of REMY's Music & Film Blog: "(they) strike a perfect balance between rising energetic stompers and slowing down the set at points to create a pretty emotive atmosphere. FIELDS are the type of Irish band that deserve success, they can write the tunes for sure, and evidently have a fanbase that is growing, add to that a memorable live performance and all we can do now is watch and wait."
