87. Field Trip’s psychedelic “Song 4 California.” - Buzzfeed

"Song 4 California Video Premier"

Lately, everyone that I talk to seems to be thinking about the warmer weather in California, at least those of us in the Northeast seem to, and maybe that's because we're living in a world of black ice and temperatures as low as six degrees on our morning commutes. So to combat it, Field Trip has some 70's images that make the viewer feel as though they're living in a blue dream, and it is possibly the most Cali-influenced music video that I've ever watched. However, behind the topless women, palm trees, vintage bathing suits and beaches there are deeper meanings of love and loss. Because mastermind Noah Champ recently relocated from his hometown of Los Angeles to the bitter temperatures that we're bearing through here in NYC. - Earmilk

"Field Trip: "This Band Needs To Break""

Field Trip is the project of L.A. native Noah Champ. He initially started out writing for bands in L.A. and eventually started writing on his own in the solitude of his bedroom. He’s since relocated to New York City and has released his first two singles, a pair of dreamy psych-rock jams in the same vein as Tame Impala.

Take “Song 4 California” what starts as a groovy bit of lounge rock, with psych elements sprinkled within and soon becoming perfectly merged. Or his debut single “The Sound Inside Your Mind” which is a dreamy otherworldly experience entirely. Both songs are promises looks at an artist ready to break out. - We All Want Someone To Shout FOr

"Field Trip LA Magazine Profile"

Last fall, California musician Noah Champ, who records under the moniker Field Trip, left our sunny shores and headed to Brooklyn, and college at NYU. Through the single and accompanying video, “Song 4 California,” off of his debut EP, The Sounds Inside Your Mind, Champ looks at the jarring yet exciting internal conflict that came with leaving a love affair behind (this one with a place, not a girl) to move on to the next chapter of his life. Gaining traction in the Brooklyn music scene, fellow students make up the performing band, and they have a gig at an outdoor fest at NYU on May 8 opening for Cloud Nothings. But California will get him back, at least for what he hopes are three sunny summer months, so check out his Facebook page for a chance to catch the band performing in L.A. then.

We can’t stop listening to Field Trip’s “Song 4 California” for it’s smooth melody and video clips of vintage Southern California. Start your summer early below.

""never" (Stereogum Premier)"

Field Trip is a bedroom pop project fronted by Noah Davies. Davies moved to New York in 2014 and became fascinated with neo-psych and ’90s-inflected synth sounds. “Never” is the first song off the group’s forthcoming debut album, and it loops and spirals with the same kind of mesmerizing, warm guitars that made Real Estate beloved, before venturing into destroyed pop territory. At points the sounds seem like they’re melting a little, held too close to the flame of memory, and a jazzy breakdown surfaces at the end like a sudden afterthought. “Never” is a song for when your nostalgia starts to fray, when you stop worshiping the past and let it dissipate without holding on. Davies says of the song: “‘Never’ is about a lot of feelings mostly, about love and hesitation and eternal suburban nostalgia, and odd things like this that made me scream it for first time, like it had been there forever.” Aside from Davies, Field Trip is composed of guitarist Nico Guyer on guitar, bassist Skylar Young, drummer Jason Park and Phill Dabs on synths. Their debut album is slated for release in the fall. Listen to “Never” below and check out their upcoming New York show dates below. - Stereogum

""2 NY" Premiere"

field trip took shape in 2014 when vocalist/percussionist Noah Champ moved from Los Angeles to New York. Working in a medium-fi idiom called v o i d p o p, the band’s debut full length, Horror Vacui, is out November 11.

In the visual arts, horror vacui, or “fear of empty space,” led to artworks 100% crammed with detail. Nature (and many a painter) abhors a vacuum. field trip, too, share the impulse to fill it all up, and you can hear it on new track “2 NY,” as cavernous funk warps and swirls into high dew point production overload. It’s a song wherein classic human void-fear, happening within the delirious insomnia of NYC, becomes an all-encompassing sensation. - Tiny Mix Tapes

"field trip ready debut LP // "4 CA" Premiere"

V a c u i †, in late autumn. You can get a taste now via new single “4 CA,” a late-night jam driven by a mercurial bassline, breathy vocals and lead guitar line that rips through the sky like the Concorde. You can stream that, and a few other Field Trip songs, below.
