New Music | Field Report - Wings

Field Report

[B]ack in 2012 there was a lot of hubbub over Wisocnsin’s Field Report, I saw them at SXSW and they totally amazed me. Chris Porterfield’s background, vocals and songwriting gave the band instant gravitas, they toured relentlessly and blew us all away with their tunes. Having written one of my favorite records that year, I have been eagerly awaiting what brings them to the fold and we are finally here. Their forthcoming record, Marigolden, drops October 9 but we’re getting our first taste today of single “Wings,” and entirely stripped down, bare, digital-folk tune that feels as though you are floating within Porterfield’s personal ruminations on touring, drinking, and the toll it all takes mentally and physically. The result is a sparsely beautiful tune that you will get lost in.
