Aptly named 5-piece Goldfields are from the mining country of Ballarat, and blew me away with their on stage show supporting Canadian band Metric last Thrusday.
‘Moves’ was one of their tracks that I had previoulsy enjoyed, but there was something about seeing Goldfields perform it live for the first time that blew my mind and took the appreciation of their music to a new level. Countries are backed by Nuclear Weapons, Politicains thier word, but nothing compares to the double drum combination backing Gold Fields. The intensity of each drummer and the wall of sound they produce is phenomenal. Add some crafty bass, raging guitar and a smooth performing frontman and you have an ideal electro rock outfit that is just dripping in synth.
Gold Fields are one of those bands that are pretty sweet in mp3 form, but seeing them live is incomparable. GO TO THEIR GIGS!!! See for yourself!
