Forgotten Fields on Fire
1. Live By Heart
2. Under Your Skin
Some aim for the complicated tunes, others for the immediate ones. Though there are few musicians who are able to multitask at the same time and also to create a lavishing hodgepodge of euphony.
"Forgotten Fields on Fire" is such a band and has the talent needed to execute this difficult task. The duo has existed since the summer of 2009 and consists of the Danish songwriters Frederik Gøtzche and Jakob Bøcher Müller. In community they write semi-psychedelic pop music with roots in the 60's beat culture. Important inspirations are The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel but also newer acts such as MGMT and Blur. They create a catchy, British orientated expression with essential elements such as polyphonic vocal harmonies and majestic, orchestral string arrangements. The result is a very catchy and accessible sound that also leaves space for multiple interpretations due to the overwhelming amount of detail and layers that the music has in it.
Since their formation, "Forgotten Fields on Fire" has received a great amount of good feedback and reviews in national and international medias and can input impressive things on their résumé such as support gigs for Danish Treefigight For Sunlight and Brooklyn-based Emmanuel and The Fear. In 2010, they participated in the Danish mini festival Oppenheimer's Afternoon, which is known for spotting upcoming talents who have received wider attention later on in their career.
In 2011, the ambitions are even bigger though. Right now the band is working hard on their debut album that is planned to be released before the end of the year. So there's a lot to look forward to. One thing is for sure at least: We're excited!
