Musicians: Peter Brewis, David Brewis, Kev Dosdale, Andrew Lowther
Following release of their fourth album earlier this year, brothers Peter and David Brewis come to Warwick Arts Centre this Autumn.
The band’s music draws on influences as wide-ranging as Stravinsky, Fleetwood Mac, Serge Gainsbourg, Thelonious Monk and Kate Bush with a distinct sound like all of the pop music you’ve ever heard but with a distinctly British – and north-eastern – tinge. They playfully twist compositions into new and odd shapes, with a refreshing disregard for convention and cliche.
Field Music’s latest album Plumb is shot through with the surreal abstractions of 20th Century film music from Bernstein to Willy Wonka and with the off-beam funk and pristine synth-rock developed on the brothers’ School of Language and The Week That Was albums.
The brothers tour to Warwick Arts Centre with old hand Kev Dosdale on synth and guitar and new boy Andrew Lowther on bass.
Seating up to 550, audiences are assured of an excellent view of the stage and comfortable seating in this well-designed auditorium. The theatre stages the best national and international plays and performances, as well as contemporary and international dance, music and comedians.
