Field Music Official Aftershow Announced!
Featuring music from guest DJ Marie Nixon of The Cornshed Sisters, we keep the night young and the good times rolling after the gig with a party on Sage One Level One Bar from 10.30pm until 12.30am!
Commontime is the new record from Field Music, the first album from Sunderland siblings Peter and David Brewis since 2012’s Plumb. Written and recorded in spontaneous bursts over six months in their Wearside studio, Commontime is built around the brothers playing, writing and singing together again after four years of solo works, collaborations and soundtracks.
No one else really does what Field Music do: the interweaving vocals, the rhythmic gear changes, the slightly off-chords, the obvious lack of bombast, the songs which end abruptly or merge into others. And while these idiosyncrasies remain, Commontime shows off the brothers’ unashamed love of choruses and classic pop and rock in a way they’ve only hinted at before.
Field Music have always been a unique proposition; a band that stand apart from tired rockist, and rock and roll tropes, who consistently question what it is to be a band, who plough a furrow that, since their 2005 debut has been theirs and theirs alone.
Please note this is in Sage One at 7.30pm and not in Sage Two at 8pm, as advertised in our May – June What’s On Guide.
This September and October sees a packed programme of gigs which showcase the finest international and local artists. From Motown legends The Four Tops and The Temptations and pop icons Heaven 17 to local stars Field Music and Brazilian hip hop activist Billy Saga, we have your musical taste...
