Over the past four years, North-East siblings Peter and David Brewis have threaded their way through one extra-curricular project after another but were inevitably drawn back to working together on their own songs. “As much fun as we might have had on our own or collaborating, we missed just spending time in the studio, the two of us, trying things out and playing together,” explains David.

The space that Field Music vacated in those four years still appears to be empty. No one else really does what Field Music do: the interweaving vocals, the rhythmic gear changes, the slightly off-chords, but with the sensibility that keeps them within touching distance of pop music. But with Commontime, Field Music show off their unashamed love of choruses in a way they’ve only hinted at before. Written and recorded in spontaneous bursts over six months in their Wearside studio, Commontime is built around the brothers playing and singing together again, but also features a wider array of players, including original Field Music keyboardist Andrew Moore, Peter’s wife Jennie Brewis and new member of the live band Liz Corney on vocals, plus a panoply of other players.

“We wanted to embrace being a duo and, perversely, that made us feel more comfortable about all of those conspicuous cameos” reveals David.  Over the fourteen songs of Commontime, real life conversations are replayed, acquaintances come and go, hard won friendships are left to drift and diffuse snap shots of the everyday are pulled together into what must rank amongst Field Music’s best works to date.

Commontime is available to pre-order at www.field-music.co.uk on limited edition 2 x 180gram green vinyl + download code, CD, and download, whilst indie stores have an exclusive 2 x 180gram orange vinyl version.   The album is also available to pre-order on iTunes with an instant download of ‘The Noisy Days Are Over’ and ‘Disappointed.’
The Field Music live band expands to a five piece live with Peter and David alternating between lead vocals, drums, keyboards and guitar, ably abetted by Kev Dosdale (guitar, synths), Andrew Lowther (bass) and Liz Corney (keys and vocals).
