It wouldn’t come as a surprise if you told me that Fieldhouse (Facebook/Twitter) had been up for the Mercury Music Awards this week – though that is if they had an album. If their E.P is anything to go by, there is a record contract and album looming. A band made up of, what I believe to be, five protégées, Fieldhouse are a band with musical talent flowing through their veins and a keen desire to produce music that is both moody and comforting. Their E.P ticks every box. I’ve been listening to them for approximately 15 minutes and I already feel like they’re deeply embedded into my psyche. They combine two of my favourite things in the world; big guitar riffs with an atmospheric, experimental sound whilst also remaining quite poppy at times and 100% English sounding.

If you thought that youthful sophistication was an oxymoron then this is the band which proves you wrong. It’s not only the lyrical content that is complex and intelligent, it’s the way that every instrument seamlessly, and at times effortlessly, flows to produce such an ambient, atmospheric and powerful sound. Fieldhouse’s E.P offers a multitude of different sounds from We’re Not In Love, which sounds like a mixture between Mogwai and Ultrasound’s Stay Young, to Honest To God- a song that could rival any indie-pop song being blasted from the radio at the moment. Blitzkrieg is a track that leads you on a false path of atmospheric security as it falls into a cataclysmic end of cymbals and shouts from lead singer, Lewis, of an apocalypse so it’s quite an apt title and end. If you honestly sit down, with BIG earphones and attentively listen to both lyrics and the musicianship you realise that these guys are geniuses.

If Fieldhouse don’t get snapped up soon, I’ll shout from the roofs of Liverpool myself and maybe even send a letter to the Prime Minister. - The Blue Walrus Blog

Bio

Fieldhouse

Welcome to the house. Wipe your feet.
We are Chris, Lewis, Phil, Richard and Ross. We are Fieldhouse.
What do we do?
We create music that you live in. Founded in the strength of Crowded House and Blur, we make music that’s about you. Life, love, hate politics. You’re house is our house. We wrap you up in warm textures like blankets; ask you the important questions in the middle of the night with a delicate melody and tear off the roof tiles with a stormy guitar riff.
Where do we live?
We live, love, work and play in the Pool De La Vie… Liverpool. You should come and see us there.
Why?
We love music. We love to play music and make people feel something. Life is all about that feeling isn’t it? You know… the one where you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but here, now. The place that music takes you. Back to your house. Where you grew up. To the real you.
We know you live there.
We Live Here.
