Field Music - Wilderness 2012 review
'They failed to engage the crowd'
Anne-Marie Douglas - 13 August 2012
Sunderland brothers, David and Peter Brewis of the much lauded Field
Music played the Sunday afternoon slot at Wilderness Festival 2012.
With only around 20 people standing watching whilst others lounged, likely recovering from the previous evening‘s revelry, it’s fair to say that Field Music failed to engage the crowd, unfortunately for them just as the sky clouded over.
Perhaps it was just too left-field for this audience, or it was in having to follow the strong hooks and lyrics of To Kill a King prior to them, but their eclectisism and left of centre angle seems utterly lost on the Wilderness crowd.
Field Music appear uptight in appearance and without the energy required to win new fans over in this environment. It’s an unpredictable and jerky set, though the pair switch between guitar, drums and lead vocals effortlessly, it’s disappointing given their credibility and critically acclaimed albums.
