Field music, brothers Peter and David Brewis, hail from sunderland in the north-east of England. The band's music draws on influences as wide-ranging as Stravinsky, Stax r&b, Fleetwood Mac, Serge Gainsbourg, Thelonious Monk and Kate Bush. Field music's sound is like all of the pop music you've ever heard but with a distinctly British, north-eastern English, tinge. They've become known for a deconstructionist approach to songwriting, playfully twisting compositions into new and odd shapes, with a refreshing disregard for convention and cliche.
In addition to their output as Field Music (most notably 2012's Mercury nominated Plumb), David and Peter have released solo albums as School Of Language and The Week That Was, respectively. They recently composed and performed a score for 1929 silent documentary Drifters. Last year, Peter released an experimental collaborative record with Maxïmo Park frontman Paul Smith, while this April sees the release of Field Music touring band alumni Ian Black's album as SLUG (produced by and featuring the Brewis brothers). Other 'Field Music Productions are too numerous to list here.
Field Music are set to undertake their biggest headline shows in October 2016 in support of new album Commontime.
