  • Melbourne indie-pop chanteuse Georgia Fields releases her debut self-titled album through Popboomerang Records this 9th October 2010.

    Fields made her debut in December of 2007, with her independently released EP ‘Drama on the High Seas of Emotion’. The title-track peaked at #4 on Triple J’s Unearthed Pop Charts, and with each CD cover personally handcrafted from a Little Golden Book, Georgia quickly sold out of the limited-edition 500 copies. In the same year she won the Queenscliff Music Festival’s “Foot In The Door” Industry competition.

    Playing The Apollo Bay Music Festival, St Kilda Festival, and Queenscliff Music Festival to name just a few, Fields cut her teeth on the live scene supporting iconic Australian artists like Angie Hart, Abby Dobson, and alt-country supergroup The Wilson Pickers.

    Now after two years in the making, Georgia Fields gets set to release her debut self-titled album, preceded by the release of singles ‘One Finger’ and ‘Something Borrowed, Something Blue’. Recorded in a mix of theatres, lounge rooms and studios, the long awaited LP is a pocket-sized orchestral wonder. The album sees Fields bravely combining the childlike naivety of experimental sounds with timeless string, brass and woodwind arrangements. But what is perhaps most immediate is her vocal performance; assured and disarmingly honest.

    ’Georgia Fields’ draws back its curtains with an instrumental ‘Overture’ – a sombre prelude to ‘7 Years’, where over a dreamy vibraphone introduction, we hear Field’s first lyrics for the record. Crafting her story out of memories and metaphors, Fields tells us of her youth spent in a cult. The album’s third single ‘All The King’s Men’ is a ukulele-driven, joyfully retro escapade into the realms of domestic bliss. Yet in the same breath, Fields gives us an agonizingly acute account of a couple who are ‘falling apart like pavlova’, in ‘Sinking Relation Ship’. Remarkably, this track heralds a percussive cordless drill accompaniment, along side the romantic antiquity of strings and clarinet.

    Thanks to funding support from Arts Victoria, Fields has recruited a full cast of orchestral musicians, as well as a stellar production team. Producer Greg Arnold (Skipping Girl Vinegar; Carus; Stonefield) was joined by engineer Dave McCluney at Atlantis Sound (Nick Cave; Dan Kelly; Dave Graney; The Drones), and the record was mastered in Nashville USA by the legendary Jim DeMain (Dolly Parton; June Carter-Cash; Patty Griffin, Justin Townes Earl; Tim Finn).

    Ross Clelland of Drum Media Sydney aptly mused, "there is something fresh in the hand-stitched romanticism of Ms Fields. It comes from somewhere in the past certainly... There is a charm to this, an honesty without pose.”

    Whether it be playing solo or with her mini-indie-orchestra, don’t miss Georgia Fields’ remarkable live show as she tours nationally through October and November.

    Georgia Fields self-titled album is released on 9th October through Popboomerang Records/MGM.
