Perth-based Irish native, Fields, releases new single and announces extensive WA tour.
Whether it is the effortless grace of her melodies, the sweetness of her timbre or the irresistible dash of a Dublin accent, there is something magical in Fields’ alluring voice. Now based in Perth, the Irish native has earned her stripes fronting sweaty, touring rock bands, but is at her most intense when it is just her and an acoustic guitar. Stripped back to these primal basics, Fields soars on her latest single, Neverland.
Navigating the waters between the ascendency of love and the crushing depths of heartbreak, Fields delivers raw emotion made beautiful. Through her poetic, dreamy lyrics, Neverland switches between adulthood and childlike wonderment – delving into an affair of the heart and its full spectrum of feelings and consequence. The confident power of her voice gives the lyrics authority and finality. Impassioned and volcanic, yet perfectly harnessed and controlled. It is a beautiful song.
Neverland is a proper taste of what Fields does live – an intimate yet boisterous brand of Celtic-flavoured folk, driven by an unrelenting acoustic guitar and meaty foot-stomp beats. Capable of scaling mountainous melodies, Fields’ voice can be fragile and delicate, then switch to roaring velocity in a heartbeat. With these ingredients, nothing needs embellishment…the production is lean and muscular, bypassing frills so as to allow the true character of Neverland to flourish.
A lifer musician down to her core, Fields will play anywhere, anytime; recently completing a European tour of her own. This experience finds its way into her songs, which are both personal and fantastical. Going forward, the plan is to do more of the same: tour the world, write songs, record and release. Her loyal, ever-growing fanbase can expect to hear a lot more from Fields.
