GOLD FIELDS is a groovy-vibey-electronic group from Australia.
It is difficult to classify the band under one label. People have tried. They have tried to describe their music as groovy, hypnotic, neo-psychedelic, trippy, indie, retro-eighties rock.
That’s not a thing.
While all those characterizations may be true, there is no such category. And that is what makes this band so special. You never know what you’re going to get. Many people say predictable bands are boring. Gold Fields’ music falls somewhere between organic, natural instrumentation and digitally-created sounds.
These are some super talented musicians that have played some impressive stages like SXSW, Coachella and Jimmy Kimmel Live. They say their latest album just kinda “happened”.
They pulled pieces of songs out of nowhere and fit them all together. They had no specific direction for the album. They let the sounds take them wherever they would. They started out experimenting and ended up going on a music expedition.
The was just released in mid-April and is available for download now.
