Nite Fields are a dark as hell Brisbane new-wave electro band who make cold, hypnotic tracks swimming in grim atmospherics. ‘Vacation’ is the latest one of these. Sounding very much The Horrors in their Primary Colours era, its entrenched in deep, echoing vocals and dense, driving synth. This track is just smothered in likeable angst, but the repetitive bass and blunt snare beats stop it from drowning in it’s own moodiness, propelling the track forward before it turns into a hazy, surprisingly sweet synth driven jam at the end. This vacation sure isn’t fun in the sun, but a great tune nonetheless.
‘Vacation’ will be out one limited edition vinyl on November 17th through Lost Race Records. Nite Fields are also playing at the Lost Race Festival in Brisbane on the same day. Probably not a coincidence.
