Field Mouse have announced their new album, ‘Meaning’.
Their third full-length is due 16th August via Topshelf Records, preceded by lead single ‘Heart of Gold’.
"A lot has happened in the three years since our last record came out,” the band’s Rachel Browne explains. “While there is far too much to say about it all in one place, we wrote this album anyway.
“What are the broad strokes, you ask? It's more or less about the end of the world and all of the ways that it seems to be happening, but also about making peace with former selves and growing as a person despite the feeling of global entropy.
“Also: strange internet versions of our friends and selves, bouts of insomnia and picking through the dreams that followed, the importance of forgiveness, and creating meaning in a world that increasingly feels like total chaos. What is the function of art in a place like this? Is anything we make going to last?
“I am not sure, but here are 11 songs looking for the answer. What I do know is that art connects us to each other and to our feelings and our selves. It is a liferaft, and I hope that we can all continue to put it into the world, appreciate it, and share it indefinitely."
