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."
