Biography

Sunderland, United Kingdom

Field Music are from Sunderland in the north-east of England. They make experimental pop music. The band is led by brothers Peter and David Brewis. They have released four ‘proper’ albums - Field Music [2005], Tones of Town [2007], Field Music (Measure) [2010] and Plumb [2012], all through Memphis Industries - as well as a compilation of B-sides (Write Your Own History, 2006) and a collection of cover versions (Play, 2012). Plumb was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize.

After the release of Tones of Town, the group announced a break, which lead to solo releases by the brothers (David’s “Sea From Shore” under the name School of Language, and Peter’s album as The Week That Was, both 2008), before reconvening in 2009.

All of Field Music’s albums were self-produced at the band’s studio space in Sunderland.

Other musicians who have played in the group on record or onstage include Andrew Moore, Tom English, Kevin Dosdale, Ian Black, Damo Waters, Andrew Lowther, Peter Gofton, Mark Simms, Emma Fisk, Peter Richardson and Pauline Brandon.
