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, the Australian quintet will kick off a national co-headlining tour with A Silent Film & Royal Teeth next week. Fans that can’t make it out can watch their debut TV appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! performing ”Dark Again,” February 27th at 11:35/10:35pm Central on ABC.
The band has already shared a few songs off Black Sun via thematically charged videos for “Treehouse” and most recently “Dark Again” ft model Shaun Ross who has also starred in Katy Perry, Kanye West & Beyonce videos. With dreamy, swirling layers and sincere lyrics that showcase the band’s vulnerable side, the band has unleashed new album track “Happy Boy” today.
Stream: Gold Fields – “Happy Boy”
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. The 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.”
MTV has named Gold Fields one of their 13 Artists to Watch in 2013, supporting the band across their platforms throughout the year. The result of relentless work and playful experimentation, Black Sun will be released February 26th via Astralwerks. The album is available for pre-order now. Be sure to catch Gold Fields LIVE on tour and stay tuned for more news + SXSW details!
