WATCH: Field Music Faces the Ghost of Indie Past in “The Noisy Days Are Over” Video

The Sunderland, England, group’s fifth LP Commontime is out February 5 via Memphis Industries.

Unless you’re Elvis Costello, smart pop has never been a particularly lucrative genre. But for those who are good at it—like the band Field Music—there are always enough loyal fans to keep going.

More than ten years out from their self-titled debut, Field Music are far from quitting, but they are aware of their increasingly outsider status—and have shared as much with “The Noisy Days Are Over.” Today, the group shared a new video for the bubbly first single from their upcoming LP Commontime, which shows us a day in the life of the the Brothers Brewis—part local legends, part local weirdos.
