Rising Ballarat boys Gold Fields are excited to announce the release of their self-titled, debut EP. Delivering on the thrilling promise the quintet have shown since they seemingly burst out of nowhere in late 2010, the 4 Track EP is a taut set of frantic dance-pop ‘n’ anthemic jams and includes a remix of their breakout single “Treehouse” and follow-up smash “The Woods”.
Gold Fields hit the ground running when “Treehouse” was plucked off Triple J Unearthed and instantly added to high rotation. Their accompanying live shows quickly gained them a word-of-mouth reputation for being a high-energy combo of pounding drums, rhythmic basslines and herky-jerky dancing.
Within only a couple of months of forming, the band raced off to the UK to do showcase gigs with The Naked & Famous and others, as well as securing a release of “Treehouse” on tastemaker London label Young & Lost Club.
Gold Fields arrived back home in time to be hand-picked by Triple J to play the Falls Festival in Lorne, and see in the New Year with a slot at Field Day in Sydney.
Since then they’ve shared stages with international artists like Crystal Castles and Datarock, and embarked on extensive tours with home-grown heroes The Holidays, Miami Horror and Pnau.
In August the band de-camped to Los Angeles to begin work on their debut album with renowned producer Mickey Petralia (Beck, Ladytron). They’ll return to Australia for the national run of dance festival Parklife in September, ready to take the songs off their debut EP to dance floors across the land.
The future is Gold.
