Field Vacation By Nite

Brisbane sonic diviners Nite Fields have only been on this mortal coil for just over a year, but the inroads made into their quest for aural evolution have been bountiful.

The next step across their causeway of lysergic discovery comes in the form of new 7” Vacation-Hell/Happy (out through Lost Race Records). Mining the depths of Joy Division post-punk atmospherics, shoegaze washes and Snowman baroque gloom and suspense, the dour drone that the insidious bassline and all-pervading synth creates for Danny Venzin’s purposeful vocals to finally shine through is easily the best sounding platform the quartet have put to tape yet. Two snapshots of an ever-expanding act, one that should be making an indelible impact on the local scene in 2013.

Nite Fields are playing at the Lost Race festival at Coorparoo Bowls Club on Saturday November 17, where they will be launching the 7” alongside Blank Realm, Secret Birds, Do The Robot, Cobwebbs, Dreamtime and so many more – It'll be great, make sure you're there (all for $20 and 1976 beer prices). If you can’t make it, you can pre-order the 7” (there are only 150 available) here.
