Dubbed “Prince’s favourite pop duo” (Mojo), the esteemed Brewis brothers began making records as Field Music in 2005. With a Mercury Prize nomination for their 2012 album Plumb under their belt, Field Music have received critical acclaim for their distinct and adventurous approach to songwriting and collaboration. Alongside their five ‘proper’ album releases, they’ve recorded a collection of covers and B-sides, film scores and spin-off projects, The Week That Was and School of Language. Field Music have toured the world and worked with the likes of Slug, The Cornshed Sisters, Pea Sea, The Futureheads and Maximo Park. All of the brothers’ recordings have been made at their own studio space in Sunderland.
We worked with Field Music in 2017 for a residency based at their studio space in Sunderland exploring the process of record-making.
