Somehow in the hustle + bustle of 2014, we 100% missed the long-anticipated debut LP from a Brooklyn newgaze favorite, Field Mouse.
The band was in the midst of hammering out album details when we last spoke with them in a 2013 interview and, luckily, they didn’t take any major detours in terms of the band’s sound live and on the many singles + EPs released leading up to that point. Noisey washes of bending, layered guitars give singer, Rachel Browne, a point on the wall to aim for as she sways back and forth between blended swoons and piercing, poppier, forward vocals, all setting a tone that both solidly nods to the early 90s shoegaze I loved and works to gain new ground.
By all accounts, the band made a pretty big impression at SXSW last week, so here’s to their success! The band’s been raising funds to help pay for a tour that’s led up to and continued on beyond South by, offering a host of fun rewards, among them, a new cover album they’re set to record.
