Watch Gold Fields' New Lyric Video For "Treehouse" [Exclusive Video Premiere]
Joyously exuberant and irresistibly brilliant, Aussie pop outfit Gold Fields sure knows how to stir up a lasting impression with their peppy and happy go lucky alt-pop tunes. The quintet was one of the stand out artists among hundreds of rising new acts at South by Southwest just last month where they were lauded for their energetic and crunchy mash of pop, dance and rock.
To the uninitiated, Gold Fields is the teaming of Mark Robert Fuller (vocals), Vin Andanar (guitar/vocals), Rob Clifton (keys/percussion), Ryan D’Sylva (drums) and Luke Peldys (bass). The group simply started recording and rehearsing in Andanar’s house in the northern Victorian town of Ballarat, initially writing "dark, country-tinged songs."
A press release describes that they decided to change course after their own music started to depress them. They soaked up the summer sun and popped a few beers, which ended up setting the perfect tone for their new sonic direction that resulted in lead single "Treehouse." The song is a bright, shiny slice of summer escapism ruled by a bouncy bassline, hypnotic, tribal drums and that oh-so very infectious "wooo" that encourages you to dive in and loose yourself in the moment. It's ridiciously good and with lyrics like, "just turn the sound up and away we go" there's is no doubt what the song intends to do with you.
"Treehouse" is taken from the group's debut EP that is available on iTunes now on Astralwerks/EMI in North America. The EP was produced Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Sleepy Jackson, Silverchair) polished up their home recordings. "From the beginning, we made it a big point to make every song sound different," says guitarist Vin Andanar in a press release. "We didn't want to be pigeonholed as part of any scene or specific sound." Check out the "Treehouse" lyrics video exclusively below and grab the Gold Fields EP on iTunes.
