"We want to make people feel good about things that we feel terrible
about." says David Brewis, who has co-led the band Field Music with
his brother Peter since 2004. Its a statement which seems particularly
fitting to their latest album, Flat White Moon released on 23 April via
Memphis Industries.
Sporadic sessions for the album began in late 2019 at the pairs studio
in Sunderland, slotted between rehearsals and touring. The initial
recordings pushed a looser performance aspect to the fore, inspired
by some of their very first musical loves; Free, Fleetwood Mac, Led
Zeppelin and The Beatles; old tapes and LPs pilfered from their
parents shelves. But a balance between performance and
construction has always been an essential part of Field Music.
By March 2020, recording had already begun for most of the albums
tracks and, with touring for Making A New World winding down, Peter
and David were ready to plough on and finish the record.
The playfulness that's evident in much of Flat White
Moons music became a way to offset the darkness and the sadness
of many of the lyrics. Much of the album is plainly about loss and grief,
and also about the guilt and isolation which comes with that.
Those personal upheavals are apparent on songs like Out of the
Frame, where the loss of a loved one is felt more deeply because they
cant be found in photographs and compounded by the suspicion that
you caused their absence, or on When You Last Heard From a Linda,
which details the confusion of being unable to penetrate a best friends
loneliness in the darkest of circumstances.
Some songs are more impressionistic. Orion From The Streets
combines Studio Ghibli, a documentary about Cary Grant and an
excess of wine to become a hallucinogenic treatise on memory and
guilt.. Others, such as Not When Youre In Love, are more
descriptive. Here, the narrator guides us through slideprojected scenes, questioning the ideas and semantics of
love as well the reliability of his own memory.
For the most part, the album has fewer explicitly political themes than
previous records, though there is No Pressure, about a political class
who feel no obligation to take responsibility if they can finagle a
narrative instead. And theres Im The One Who Wants To Be With
You which skirts its way around toxic masculinity through teenage
renditions of soft-rock balladry.
On Flat White Moon Field Music take on the challenge of representing
negative emotions in a way that doesnt dilute or obscure them but
which can still uplift. The result is a generous record of
bounteous musical ideas, in many ways Field Musics most
immediately gratifying to date
