The Field Mice – Five Moments

If any band defined the sound of Sarah Records it was Londoners the Field Mice. At the time they sorta passed me by except for ‘If You Need Someone‘ which appeared on one of those ubiquitous indie top 20 compilations from the early nineties. While that tune leaned towards electro pop ‘Five Moments’ displays the pleasant jangly chords for which the Field Mice are best remembered. There is also an unmistakable shoegaze drift to Annemari Davies vocals highlighting how the Field Mice were one of pop’s chameleons. So much so that if you closed your eyes and dreamt of Sarah Cracknell you could almost think you were listening to St. Etienne. If you are intrigued, and you should be, then try on the Field Mice’s glorious retrospective titled ‘Where’d You Learn To Kiss That Way?’ or anything by Northern Picture Library/Trembling Blue Stars who followed in their wake.
