Watch :: Field Music share new 'Disappointed' video as they set out on US tour
Words: Sam Geary
Sunderland brothers Peter and David Brewis - aka Field Music - have just shared the music video to 'Disappointed', taken from the new album 'Commontime'.
Directed by Andy Martin, he describes how it was "inspired by me seeing (many years ago) the bullet time technique used in a Ryoichiro Debuchi film from the early 80s. We filmed these bullet time sequences on a freezing January day in the sports hall/gym of the Sans Street Youth and Community Centre (thanks to them!), which is in the East End of Sunderland. Pete and Dave used to play football there when they were younger, think their Mum used to work there."
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.
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).
Field Music head out on their first US tour in five years this week.
