Field Music share video for 'Count It Up'
Field Music have unveiled the music video for 'Count it Up' via NPR today, taken from their top 30 album Open Here.
David Brewis has described the track as being written, in part, as a way of processing his anxieties about his hometown of Sunderland after it became the first town in Britain to vote for Brexit. In the "Count it Up" video, directed by Andy Martin, the town functions as both setting and co-star, providing a backdrop that helps to contextualise and complicate the unexamined privilege and reactionary attitudes skewered in the song's lyrics.
‘Open Here’ is out now on transparent 180g vinyl, CD and cassette from www.field-music.co.uk. Field Music have also announced a string of UK and European shows in 2018. The dates include special shows at the Barbican in London and Deer Shed Festival, where they will be accompanied with strings, horns, woodwind and assorted percussion provided by the Open Here Orchestra.
