Austin Rockers, Good Field, are creating music solely for the love of music as they release their inner worlds throughout the latest album release, ‘Surface Tension’.
Kicking off with the first track, “Necessary Feeling”, the guys rev the engines of listeners over a unique Rock ‘N’ Roll sound that incorporates Indie elements that mimic the likes of Jet in their ‘Get Born’ days. The second track, “Ordinary People”, showcases Good Field’s extensive instrumental prowess as they kick off with a smooth blast of psychedelia while the lyrics tackle the battle of the ego and showcase the inner work that they have done to reach a meaningful place of humanness. “Naked and Asleep” is the third track that begins with a mellow yet energetically rich instrumental which leads to Lead Vocalist, Paul Price, sharing his vocal style that takes listeners back to the 70’s. The fourth track, “All This Time”, is a romantic lyrical journey into a place that is shared with an individual who has steadily sparked a fire within the heart over time.
“Endless Nights” is the fifth track that begins with a unique feeling of Swing laced into Rock which leads into a lyrical spill speaking of remaining free when it comes to interpersonal connection and learning how to create trust within a partnership. The sixth and title track, “Surface Tension”, is an album highlight that carries a Groovy feeling as the guys lyrically emit the energy of pure love while speaking of the tension between two individuals that is making its way to the surface of their lives. “I Can See For Years” is the seventh track that begins with a Jazz instrumental element and leads into Paul’s vocal style morphing into a modern feel that would catch the attention of fans of groups such as Tame Impala and Death Cab For Cutie. The eighth track, “I Feel Off”, takes the album for a turn into a place that feels like the track came from the days of the early 90’s as Good Field speaks of a lack of alignment that they are encountering within. “Sparkle Playground” is the ninth track that lyrically highlights stumbling across a soulmate that has remained their main interest while journeying through an ever-changing experience of life. Closing out with “Sometimes”, Good Field end with a lyrical reminder of mindfulness as they speak of reaching a place of emptiness which in turn equates to boundlessness.
‘Surface Tension’ is a genre-bending stream of consciousness from a group of humble yet extremely talented musicians. If you’re a fan of a mixture of fellow musicians such as Wilco, MGMT and The Strokes, then keep an eye out on the ride ahead for Good Field on Soundcloud.
