Field Division is Evelyn Taylor and Nicholas Frampton. Four years on from the sumptuous dream-folk of their debut EP, 2014’s Reverie State, the Des Moines duo flex all their lung-power on their debut album, Dark Matter Dreams. Written on the road, where the duo has been living even when not touring, it’s a sweeping album with rock vigour and the spark of deeply held convictions, nurtured in the face of widespread modern disillusionment. Vintage influences include Buckingham Nicks, Led Zeppelin, All Things Must Pass, The Beatles, and the 1960s/1970s Laurel Canyon scene, but make no mistake: this is an album that lives and breathes for today.
As they navigate the shadows within and without, the duo’s chemistry lights the way forward on the upcoming LP, Dark Matter Dreams. As they say, “Our mission statement is basically where our band name comes from: to transcend, to be or go beyond the range or limits, whether it’s the darkness of our own minds or society.” Dark Matter Dreams is the sound of Field Division nurturing that timeless yearning into gutsy, glorious, in-the-moment life, hearts pulsing at the promise of the road ahead.
Field Division’s new LP “Dark Matter Dreams” is due for release on 22 June via Bella Union ·
