Everyone’s favourite odd-popsters Field Music head out on a short North East tour in support of latest album Flat White Moon this month. The Sunderland band’s brief soiree will take in The Cluny in Newcastle on Thursday 23rd, Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Social Club on Friday 24th and finishing on home turf at The Peacock in Sunderland on Sunday 26th September.

Those lucky enough to get a ticket can expect some choice cuts from the band’s trademark eclectic new record, including recent non-hit Not When You’re In Love and a selection of fan favourites from the band’s previous seven, ten, or even sixteen records depending how the band themselves count them. It’s a formidable catalogue either way you count, but Flat White Moon perhaps sees the band at their most mature and personal.

There is never a dull moment with the Brewis brothers, bolstered to a shape-shifting, instrument swapping full band live, as they hop, skip and jump through a myriad of time signatures and styles. Never having quite received the bigger audience they deserve (despite that early career Mercury nod in 2012) means we are still lucky enough to see the band in such intimate surroundings – but don’t dally, because this short run of shows is sure to be a sell-out.
