Crayon Fields US tour!


Melbourne’s euphoric pop quartet Crayon Fields are incredibly excited to announce their first ever proper USA tour. After a brief trip to SXSW, LA and New York in March, the band are heading back in October and really hitting the road, playing up and down both coasts and stopping in New York for CMJ.

They’ll be playing songs from their two much-loved albums All the Pleasures Of the World and Animal Bells as well as a swag of new material. Some of the awesome bands coming along for the ride include Air Waves, Karl Blau, Magic Bullets and Reports. Check out the dates below.

They’ve also made a free tour EP available on Bandcamp, with previously vinyl-only B-side How Loved You Are, a live version of Pleasures track Graceless, a remix of All the Pleasures Of the World by Dan Block, and a surprise – a sultry cover of the Roxette classic It Must Have Been Love.

The bandcamp link is here:

By   Released October 2006

Animal Bells is an unruffled, dreamy pop masterpiece from this young Melbourne quartet, 12 minor key pop masterpieces filled with soaring harmonies and ringing 12 string guitar. Think the Zombies, Byrds and Beach Boys, but also think the peculiar genius of singer/guitarist Geoff O’Connor who has deft and idiosyncratic touch all his own.
