Nite Fields – ‘You I Never Knew’

nite-fields-depersonalisation-artwork

The always impressive Nite Fields will deliver their debut LP ‘Depersonalisation’ on February 2 via felte. The post punk quartet originally hail from Brisbane, and tap into a classic Australian sound on their new single ‘You I Never Knew’. The 80s styled jangle popper recalls The Church or The Go-Betweens at their best. This is the first time Nite Fields have handed over production duties to a third party, the lucky man being Nigel Lee-Yang of HTRK. It’ll be really interesting to see what else ‘Depersonalisation’ has to offer. Pre-sales are available now.
