Field Music - 'A New Town'

An airless, mazy track

For millennia, funk has been the preserve of vexed-looking men who sound in dire need of shooting their loads post-haste, but Field Music tap into the genre’s potential to convey moral — as opposed to sexual — anxiety. “My body’s stretched like a nylon wire”, sings David Brewis over this airless, mazy track, in a nervy falsetto that sounds like a pre-rampage Michael Douglas in Falling Down.
