Field Harmonics – the 19 year old Bryony Williams and producer Rob Glover release their second album, Corners, on May 20 via Wayside and Woodland Recordings. The Midlands-based ambient-pop experimentalists are set to launch Corners at the Hare & Hounds, Kings Heath, on May 4 with support from Emma Fradd (Interior Castle) and Victories At Sea (DJ Set).
Sleek production and song writing on Corners positions the duo comfortably beside contemporaries such as Pumarosa, Chvrches and Chromatics, particularly on album opener and new single Life, title track Corners and Hearter.
Whilst the musical idiosyncrasies that helped to characterise the Field Harmonics sound are still present – a brilliant mix of oscillating synths, drawn-out celestial chords, driving beats and dreamlike vocals – this second body of work marks the band’s departure from the strident electronica of 2013 debut album Walls, a bold recording which channelled the best of British synth-pop.
The duo have also shared stages with artists including Visage, Still Corners, Woman’s Hour, Lapalux, Jessy Lanza, Thumpers, Man Without Country, Cymbals, Summer Heart, Pixx and Clean Cut Kid during the past twelve months.
Field Harmonics – Corners is released on CD, vinyl and digital via Wayside and Woodland Recordings on Friday 20 May 2016. Field Harmonics headline the Hare & Hounds May 4. You can buy tickets here.
