Top of the Peeps - 30/1/2012

Here to complement our regular feature Top of the Peeps were we highlight three tracks that are of interest that week.

1st Track: A New Town Artist: Field Music
Album: Plumb (out 13th February)
Gig: Bodega 22nd February

This band first came to my attention when they supported The Futureheads in around 2005/2006 when The Futureheads still seemed to be releasing hit songs. Field Music in fact has a member “Peter Brewis” who used to play as a drummer in the Futureheads. Field music though seems much more reserved than their fellow north eastern pals. With a catchy bass and some witty lyrics this song off of their upcoming album “Plumb” may be played much more over the coming months.

2nd Track: Comeback Kid Artist: Sleigh Bells
Album: Reign of Terror (out 21st February)
Gig: Various places in UK end of February till start of March

A band described as Noise pop may not appeal to most music fans but this song really belts out of the speakers. I would recommend this band if you like such acts as The Kills and Be Your Own Pet. As they provide catchy lyrics with some get up and go style backings, which really show off the bands ability.
