23 Fields Ushers in 'To Follow This Year's Fashion' with the Striking Single 'Berlin' - A Fusion of Folk and Revelry

Hastings-based alternative folk ensemble, 23 Fields, is set to captivate the hearts of music lovers with their highly anticipated album 'To Follow This Year's Fashion,' featuring the vibrant lead single 'Berlin'.

23 Fields, the distinguished alternative folk group hailing from Hastings, announces the release of their forthcoming album "To Follow This Year's Fashion," set to enchant listeners on April 1st, 2024. With their roots deeply embedded in folk, the ensemble crafts a rich tapestry of sounds, combining folksy vibes with a dash of Americana, encapsulated in the album's jaunty lead single, "Berlin."

"Berlin," with its mesmerizing blend of acoustic brilliance and subtle electric piano touches, sets the tone for the album. The track resonates with the band's early days of pub busking, bringing a warm, convivial bar atmosphere to life through its infectious rhythms and tender violin melodies, paired with distinctively raspy vocals. The opening is curious through its use of folk influence mixed with a gritty rock vocal. Staccato strings mix with a bluesy bassline and soft rock drumming to create a true fusion of uniqueness. 23 Fields certainly bring something unique to the table here.

"To Follow This Year's Fashion" is an odyssey through a myriad of influences spanning culture, music, and life itself. The album, comprising 13 tracks, serves as a vibrant showcase of the band's eclectic inspirations and personal reflections, from love and life to whimsy and roots.
