Review: Field Music, Celtic Connections 2020 | The Fountain
Field Music were formed in Sunderland in 2004 by brothers Peter and David Brewis. The band’s distinctive and innovative ‘indie prog-pop’ sound blends in a range of influences, from The Beatles, Pink Floyd and 10cc through to Steely Dan and Talking Heads. Their UK tour to promote new album, Making A New World, brought them to Glasgow’s majestic Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum on 1st February, as part of Celtic Connections. The songs on the album were originally commissioned by the Imperial War Museum in 2018 for a series of events marking the end of the First World War. Support was provided by Glasgow-based country/folk/Americana duo Tenement & Temple. Monica Queen’s pure and clear vocals and Johnny Smillie’s nimble guitar-picking were impressive.
