A band who apparently take their influence from the cult folk-horror film the Wicker Man. Each to their own, I say.
They sound pretty good for an indie band, up there with the Field Music by my reckoning, and their new album is a bit of a cracker.
Fields are lead vocalist/guitarist Nick, vocalist/keyboardist Thorunn, vocalist/drummer Henry, bassist Matty and guitarist Jamie. They tour the UK later this month.
Some small successes today. After he-who-shall-remain-nameless left the bath running and almost flooded the kitchen-which-lies-beneath, a plumber came round and confirmed our bath sealant has gone to pot and needs replacing, which will be this weekend's DIY job for the-man-who-does-not-do-DIY. Could be, erm, 'surprising'.
The plumber also told me how to fix the-cold-tap-that-has-refused-to-gush-cold-water-for-nine-months. Bless him ! Another potential DIY-disaster in the making...
Hence, 'The death' seemed vaguely appropriate. And it's a great song!
