Australian newcomers Nite Fields, who hail from the Brisbane DIY scene, have released “Vacation,” their first U.S. single.
Lead singer and songwriter Danny Venzin, at first listen, seems pretty low-key, but it only means the vibe is just very mellow on “Vacation.”
Nite Fields cavernous sound is reminiscent of Magnetic Fields, with Stephin Merritt’s drone. Among that noisy grime, heavy wisps of Joy Division or shoegazers the Horrors (albeit a tad toned down) can also be heard.
Just about everything in the song is drenched in echo– that “wall of sound” we’ve come to know and love (or hate, depending on who you ask.)
The debut from Nite Fields’ is due early next year on Felte Records.
