New Sounds: Field Day offer decisive indie-pop on the indecisive ‘Go No Go’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Last week Field Day released a new video for standout single “Finished With You.” Turns out, they were anything but.


The Boston quartet today (August 31) turns around another music video, this time for gnarled indie-pop track “Go No Go”, and just like them once informing us they were moving on only to quickly return, this one rolls along through a catchy bout of modern rock juxtaposition. “The split in the background,” Field Day’s Dan Zedek says about the video, “mirrors the lyrics of the song as being about two minds of something.”

One thing “Go No Go” is certain of is that it’s another guitar-pop gem from Field Day, and serves as the title track to the band’s new EP that gets the record release party treatment September 9 at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge. The video was edited by Zedek, and features a mix of found footage, live visuals, shot by Chase Anderson at a recent Field Day gig in New York City, and scenes from their practice space. “This is new for us, to make our own videos,” admits Zedek. “We wanted to be ambitious. Turns out it was more editing than shooting.”

Go No Go, the record, was recorded with Dave Minehan at Woolly Mammoth Sound, and features six songs that are a mix of new tracks and some that would be familiar to those who have caught a live Field Day show over the past year or so. “We’re exploring our sound,” adds Zedek, “going deeper, louder, weirder, sweeter.”
