Field Music Post Video For Count It Up

Thursday, 15 February 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Field Music have released a video for Count it Up.

The track features on the duo’s new LP ‘Open Here’, which is out now. The video, meanwhile, is the work of director Andy Martin.

David Brewis told NPR, who premiered the clip:

"Sunderland has been a downtrodden place for quite a long time and people look for someone to blame. We initially talked about filming this video in parts of Sunderland that were either conspicuously run down or conspicuously well-to-do but once we started, we realised that the most interesting locations were the ones that had been up and down and sometimes were up and down at the same time; derelict factories that used to be the economic centre of the city or former shipyards that had been turned into apartments or business parks.

"I wanted us to get the Metro in there and the bridges because they're places which have a utility regardless of whether you have money or not. When I take my kids on Metro rides during the day we see all human existence on the go. We also filmed near our old studio (we're handing back the keys tomorrow after seven productive years!) and near our new studio and then we finished off near where my dad was brought up. It used to be one of the biggest council housing estates in Europe but it became a byword for Sunderland at it's lowest ebb in the 80s. They renamed the streets (as if that would solve poverty and unemployment! Ha!) and then they started to knock it down bit by bit. But, you know, driving around there at night, you see that life still goes on. Normal people in normal homes getting by and doing their best while the street lights flicker on and off."

Beginning, Middle and End: Ash's Tim Wheeler On Crafting 'Islands'

Once we had survived a punishing winter that would have made even your average White Walker cling to their hot water bottle, it came time to talk ‘soundtrack to the summer’. As ever, the conversation pretty much started and finished with Ash. Possessing a typically enchanting feelgood factor that belied the heartache at its core, the Northern Irish trio’s new album ‘Islands’ was tailor made to accompany bright blue skies and long lazy days topping up your tan.

Slaves - Acts of Fear and Love (Album Review)
Tue 21 Aug 2018
Whether it’s because they’ve pricked the ears of primetime Radio 1 DJs, or because they’ve signed to one of the biggest record labels in the world, or because their songs spout trite counterculture messages, the likes of which any 16-year-old has already heard too many times, Slaves always come across as punk-lite. It’s been said that they’re punk for those who don’t really know what punk is, and their new record, ‘Acts of Fear and Love’, proves that maxim still rings true.

Photo: Jamie-James Medina Having dispensed with the anagrams following the release of the excellent ‘El Pintor’ four years ago, Interpol’s sixth album ‘Marauder’ is the subject of a production shift. Not since 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’ have they employed an outside producer, so it’s somewhat surprising to find Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, the Flaming Lips) at the helm here.

Miles Kane - Coup de Grace (Album Review)
Wed 15 Aug 2018
No matter how much Miles Kane might like to think of himself as a solo act, the fact remains that he’s always struggled to emerge from the shadows of his more revered pals. He’s scored two number one albums with The Last Shadow Puppets, but those have to be viewed in the context of Alex Turner’s contributions. Of his own material, how much do you remember aside from a couple of chanty singalongs?
