I’m not really sure how I missed out on Foreign Fields in 2012 but holy smokefire! Obsessed is a word; I will use it to apply to this situation.
Check out their new video for, Fake Arms; closing track off their 2012 debut Anywhere But Where I Am. You may be thinking, “What an incredible stripped down and intimate performance!” But this video stays very true to form when compared to the album/studio version. With the addition of creaking floorboards and near ancient instruments, you gain that rusted and weathered mystique that that has the ability to envelop your conscience.
Foreign Fields create an unexpected blend of music. Their sound is a marriage of old and new (electro folk?) that can only be described as unpredictable brilliance. River Kings is a perfect example. I will not believe you if you say you saw that coming. The uniqueness of everything they create is constantly toeing the line of what is acceptable in any genre, and I absolutely love it.
