Field Music - Making a New World
Jan 20, 2020

Making a New World is the seventh album of Sunderland-based rock band Field Music, a band that I was not familiar with before the release of this album.

And honestly, for a band seven albums deep into their musical career, I really expected something better than this. To me, Making a New World is as boring as art pop can possibly be. Perhaps the lyrical themes can sometimes be intriguing, but for me this album is perfectly flat. Only a few of the tracks stick out as sonically interesting, tracks such as Do You Read Me? seem to fall flat on their face. Still, some cuts on here contain a certain amount of charm, such as Coffee or Wine.

Reading through the critics reviews, it appears that there seems to be an attempt of an overarching album concept about World War 1, but to be honest, I don't feel like the attempt at a concept album in no way adds to my enjoyment of this project.
