FIELDS are Seán O’Brien, Kevin Farrell, Emmet Casey, Killian Leahy, Des Brodie and Luke Butt. Formed as a full collective in 2016, FIELDS have spent the best part of the past 3 years creating and honing a sound which marries the intimacy of folk-enthused story telling with powerful synth-driven melodies, carefully entwined harmonies and captivating guitars.
The group are currently finishing their debut record titled ‘Postcolonial’ which will be released in September 2019 and will feature singles ‘Get Worse’ and the soon to be released ‘Border Boys’, while further track releases are expected over the summer months.
The band's sound is rooted in the folk variety, but carries a Heartland sensibility with a distinctly Irish twist that bridges into progressive Indie-pop, akin to the likes of Future Islands, El Vy and Beach House. Their live shows bring energy and ambience together to make for a compelling journey.
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."
