Field Music are an English rock band from Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England, that formed in 2004, notable for their numerous side-projects and collaborations with other musicians in the Wearside region. The band's core consists of brothers David and Peter Brewis (who at one time played drums for fellow Sunderland band The Futureheads), with Andrew Moore occasionally featured as keyboardist. Their line-up has at times featured members of both Maxïmo Park and The Futureheads. Early Brewis projects prior to Field Music include The New Tellers and Electronic Eye Machine. Several songs from these bands ended up as early Field Music recordings.
Field Music is the full-length debut album by indie rock band Field Music. It was released on August 8, 2005. While digital versions of the album have a white background, the CD packaging was printed on brown card. "If Only The Moon Were Up", "Shorter Shorter" and "You Can Decide" were released as singles.
Field Music (Measure) is the third full-length studio album by indie rock band Field Music. It was released on February 15, 2010. Officially, the album's name is the same as their debut album; the name "Measure", other than being the name of one of the songs, does not appear anywhere on the album's artwork. However, both fans and the band have taken to calling it Measure to distinguish the two. Measure is a double album and is split into two discs. The first disc primarily contains more traditionally-structured songs, including both of the album's singles ("Them That Do Nothing" and "Let's Write A Book"), whilst the second disc is dominated by more experimental tracks including found-sound pieces ("See You Later" and "Louis").
