We’re kicking off the new year the right way, bringing you what might be the first great song of 2010! I must admit, I had never really even heard of Field Music until recently, but they have been playing this a lot on Sirius XMU the last month or so. It turns out that the band has been around since 2004, when it formed in Sunderland, England, and is fronted by two brothers, David and Peter Brewis,
When I first heard this song, I just assumed that it was an old song that I had never heard until now, because Field Music has a sound that is reminiscent of the 1980’s. In fact, they remind me the most of bands like Crowded House, Squeeze and XTC. “Them That Do Nothing” is the first single from their upcoming CD called Measure, which will be released on February 16th. Ever since I first heard this song, all I have to do is think about it for a few seconds and it’s stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
