For their new recording, the band have sharpened up the elements of their sound for a set of crisp, propulsive and melodically rich songs, and for the first time on selected songs have collaborated with some of their favourite vocalists: peter brewis of field music, sarah cracknell of saint etienne, devon sproule, and mia la metta of beards.
Wireless World is loosely themed around a present-day that teeters between progress and collapse. the band explain, “our experience of the world and our states of mind are shaped and thrilled by unimaginably exciting leaps in technology, and yet that world will only last for a few moments as we fail to find a way to act collectively on rising temperatures, the failures of democracy and the unstoppable hunger for exploitation of the ground under our feet. this record is our attempt to make music from our experience of this present that teeters between celebration and devastation.”
Our collaboration with Field Music, filmmaker Esther Johnson and producer Bob Stanley comes to London on Feb 12th.
Asunder marks the centenary of one of the most traumatic battles in military history. Co-commissioned by 14 – 18 NOW, the UK-wide arts programme to mark the First World War centenary, this ambitious film/music event explores the legacy of the Somme through the prism of a single city – Sunderland.
Asunder is a film by award winning film maker Esther Johnson, using local archive footage to tell the story of the city’s involvement, with narration from Kate Adie and Alun Johnston.
The soundtrack to the film is created by Sunderland band Field Music and Newcastle’s Warm Digits, who will perform the film score live at the Barbican, on this occasion joined by Sarah Hayes along with a string quartet.
You can listen to Andrew from Warm Digits talking about the project on the Barbican Podcasthere
