Galway, County Galway
Field Trip are an Indie-pop band from Galway who've been playing for the last two years. The bastard child of Wavves and Real Estate, started out by shooting an inventive, quirky video for first single "You & I" (see below) using just a fridge, some spaghetti magnets and a lot of coffee. The band recently released their first EP "Evening's Over" on Citóg Records and Little L Records.
Over the past 12 months they've shared the stage with such acts as fellow indie poppers So Cow & Dott, Irish stalwarts Squarehead & No Monster Club, and notoriously ferocious live acts Oh Boland & And So I Watch You From Afar.
Super World Indie Tunes dot com have described Field Trip as "artlessly artful" and " best (they've) heard by an Irish band in quite some time", while Farren McDonnell of An Áit Eile mused "A perfect product of the Galway scene".
This group of Galway lads has been killing it as of late - with a slew of shows, fantastic fans and most importantly their new EP, "Evening's Over". Fans of artists such as Mac Demarco, Guided By Voices and Foxygen take note - this is how you make lo-fi pop.

'I will say that Field Trip are not your common modern half baked band with a fresh new sound, writing De Marco-esque pop songs full of beauty, melody, killer riffs and jostling reverberating guitars. Their live shows are 110% creamytown.'
David Boland (New Pope) - The Thin Air
'Four Galwegian ruffians, birthed from a milky cauldron of woozy vocals and toe-tapping garage pop melodies. Now under the guise of Field Trip, let the tandem union of sharp lyricism and smooth guitar with a sucker punch bring you for an enjoyable ride. Although somewhat under the radar, Field Trip’s swaying, infectious tunes are not without energy; coupled with engaging words and plucky guitar. This cheeky quartet are a tangy cocktail of all the juicy bits of Irish garage pop music today. Throw in a bucket hat, and a catchy hook and you’ve got yourself a trip to remember.'
