Click to listen to Field Music's 'A New Town'

Field Music are pop formalists who've mastered a vein of melodic, clever English rock music pioneered by the likes of Paul McCartney, Electric Light Orchestra, Elvis Costello and XTC. "A New Town," a track from their forthcoming album Plumb, is a fine introduction to the band's style, with its elegant vocal melody set against a backdrop of tight beats and densely arranged guitar and keyboard parts.

Random Notes

"It's a conversation between the two parties in a disintegrating relationship played out against a soundtrack of super-stereo double drumming and bubble blowing," singer and songwriter David Brewis says of the song. Plumb will hit stores on February 13th, but you can download "A New Town" for free now.
