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."

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
