Brooklyn swoon-pop foursome (and 2012 CMJ Marathon artist) Field Mouse has announced the release of its newest single “How Do You Know” via SoundCloud. In addition to the stream, the band will release a 7” version of the track on October 16 as a part of the Lefse Records single series. Check out the song, below.
Opening with slow, low-pitched guitar strumming, followed by singer/guitarist Rachel Browne’s ethereal ooh’s, the listener is transported to a calming, surreal world of clouds and cotton candy. Throughout the song, Browne fills the track with her sweet, innocent crooning, questioning about a recent break up and how one carries on from such an event. Even during the harsher sections of the song, Field Mouse manages to maintain a sense of purity and affection, not wanting to scare you, but rather relax you into a poignant lull.
In addition to participating in the CMJ Music Marathon, Field Mouse will be performing a couple shows in New York City prior to the Lefse Records CMJ Showcase. Supporting Field Mouse at these shows will be the surf/garage group Beach Day, and Jason Brody’s experimental project At Sea. You can view the tour dates, below.
