FIELD DAY: Oppositeland: 12” EP

Mar 17, 2021

Five-song record that finds the band building on the sound they crafted from their first single—songs that are precise but offer enough emotion to shift the balance, too. “One Song” starts things off with a bang and the pace never falters. “Waiting for a Miracle” has some puzzling lyrics, however. “She said that I better take the recommended dose / I took, I took enough to kill a horse.” So like a Clydesdale or something smaller? Dangerous—like this slab of vinyl. –Sean Koepenick (Unity Worldwide, [email protected])
