MP3: Northern Fields - Never take the beauty

I first mentioned Northern Fields way back in October, but it took a few months for the debut EP to finally show up in my mailbox (and still a few weeks more for me to get around to writing about it). Regardless, my initial assessment still stands - Northern Fields are a great female-fronted indiepop act that's guaranteed to appeal to fans of all things twee, but more importantly, their songs are well-crafted enough to impress cynics like me. To further illustrate my point, consider guitarist Andreas Hagman's other band Celestial. They are good at what they do, but they are not a band I would ever choose to listen to on my own. Northern Fields bridge the gap and transcend genre expectations.

Instead of posting little asides that run the risk of getting lost amongst the daily newsflow, I'm hoping this little showcase will help these acts get the attention they deserve. Check it out! Bands featured this time out include Agent Side Grinder, Breum, Iiwanajulma, Northern Fields and Pintandwefall.
