Gold Fields

Although Black Sun is Gold Fields’ debut full-length effort, the Australian electro-pop group is currently proving they are not only dedicated to creating a sonic atmosphere specifically designed for the live concert setting, but that they are already a force to be reckoned with as well. Each song, from album opener “Meet My Friends” to tracks like “Treehouse” and “The Woods,” is constructed carefully and intentionally, much like their album as a whole, which saw three full revisions before it developed into what it has become. Ultimately, songs like the standout track “Dark Again” show that Gold Fields’ vision extends beyond the studio. It reaches well into the eager crowd that dances without realizing they are engulfed by the drums and bass, sings each word and shouts the chorus in unison.
