Over thirteen years and six albums, former Mercury Prize nominees Field Music (brothers Peter and David Brewis), have managed to carve a niche where all of these sounds can find a place; a place where pop music can be as voracious as it wants to be. The band's music draws on influences as wide-ranging as Stravinsky, Stax r&b, Fleetwood Mac, Serge Gainsbourg, Thelonious Monk and Kate Bush.

Field music's sound is like all of the pop music you've ever heard but with a distinctly British - and north-eastern, tinge. they've become known for a deconstructionist approach to songwriting, playfully twisting compositions into new and odd shapes, with a refreshing disregard for convention and cliche.

The band recently released their album 'Open Here' on Memphis Industries to continued acclaim.
