“Measure” MP3

Oct 22, 2009

The hook-laden Sunderland indie rockers Field Music will release their third album soon. It’s their first since 2007’s pretty dang solid Tones of Town. In the interim, frontmen David and Peter Brewis focused on School of Language and The Week That Was, respectively. The new song suite is titled Measure and it’s set to drop February 16th of next year, via Memphis Industries/Revolver.

A melodious string quartet weaves and bobs through a fine lattice of bass and guitar on the title track above. “Measure” is a simple cut for sure, but a nice taste of the chamber indie rock to come. Think of a fey conflation of XTC and early-Talk Talk and you’ll get close to pinpointing the group’s tweaked approach to pop. Field Music will be previewing songs from the new LP on the road very soon.
