Big, bold and beautiful
Field Music - Field Music (Measure)

After overcoming a mini identity crisis with side projects The Week That Was and School Of Language, the Brewis brothers have returned to expand Field Music’s sonic palette in both quality and quantity.

This ambitious twenty-track sprawl nods to the inclusivity of ‘Tusk’ or ‘Sign O’ The Times’ - there’s something for everyone, including the odd dud. The Zeppelin rock of ‘In The Mirror’, the psychedelic fog of ‘Clear Water’ and the taut funk of ‘Let’s Write A Book’, all embellished with that swooping Brewis lilt, have purged previous indie tweeness. Freed from self-imposed musical constraints, ‘Field Music (Measure)’ is big, bold and beautiful. Great to have you back, boys.
