Gold Fields ‘Dalawa’ album is Everything You Love about Electronic Indie

 
12 April brings the sophomore album from Australian electro-indie band, Gold Fields via Haven Sounds. The album name Dalawa after guitarist Vin Andanar’s Filipino heritage as it translates to the number ‘Two’ and it only makes sense since the band tend to feature world cultures heavily in their artwork and music videos. 
 
Gold Fields is compiled by Mark Robert Fuller, Vinci Andanar, Luke Peldys, Rob Clifton and Ryan D’Sylva and while they originally formed in Ballarat, Victoria, they have since moved and based their work and lives in Melbourne. Though the band does seem to get out quite a bit, with appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, SXSW, Coachella and so many more. 
 
Dalawa is a step away from their usual more indie-pop sound and has a lot more electronic elements that hone in on that vintage sound but doesn’t subscribe to any time in particular. The live guitars, drums and bass really bring it all to live above the synth and keys… all the while the crisp vocals push and pull you from side to side. From the eerie opening track ‘Solar’ straight through to the more upbeat, head-bobbing, shoe-tapping centre and then in a sort of psychedelic trip that leaves you unsure of whether you’ve travelled to the past or the future. It’s otherworldly and beautifully unique to them and has a great chance of going down as one of this year’s favourite electronic albums.

1. Solar
2. Dreams
3. Waves
4. Cocoon
