Gold Fields’ debut album Black Sun is armed with pop hooks, tribal beats, danceable rhythms, and plenty of emotion. Revered for their larger-than-life live show and praised by The New York Times for their “tuneful pop approachability,” Australia’s Gold Fields are bringing their unique sound stateside.
The quintet- which includes Mark Robert Fuller (vocals), Vin Andanar (guitar/vocals), Rob Clifton (keys/percussion), Ryan D’Sylva (drums) and Luke Peldys (bass) were declared by The Huffington Post as “…one of the most impressive bands you will ever experience.” Gold Fields proved this well-earned title by blowing away audiences at various festivals across the U.S. this past year including SXSW, CMJ, Filter Culture Collide Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Hitting listeners with a power-packed punch from its first note, Black Sun opens with the infectious “Meet My Friends,” a bass and percussion-driven track with haunting echoing vocals. Their first single “Dark Again” is a pop gem flecked with driving guitars and bright synths, all building to a heavy-hitting chorus that’s sure to make you move. The album also contains “Treehouse” and the electrically-charged “Moves,” which is a crowd favorite at their live shows thanks to its infectious beat.
Dubbed as OneTwoWatch by MySpace, MTV has also named Gold Fields one of their 13 Artists to Watch in 2013, and were most recently named one of Billboard’s Artists To Watch in 2013.
