UK art-rockers Field Music have shared newest track ‘Money Is A Memory’, our latest glimpse into upcoming concept album ‘Making A New World’, a 19-track LP that details the after-effects of World War One.
“The whole album is really about consequences, and how the consequences of that war are still with us,” the band explain “‘Money Is A Memory’ is probably the most explicit example of that - decisions that were made a hundred years ago still casting a shadow. The initial premise is a bit comical - the admin assistant going through their bureaucratic duties - but buried away inside those papers you can imagine the echoes of millions of lives being turned upside down.”

A solid record that does everything you’d ever hope a Field Music album would do.
There are enough ideas in the tank here.
They released their latest album ‘Open Here’ earlier in the month.
A deeply astute pop album that’s also often brimming with fun.
