You Tell Me are Field Music'€™s Peter Brewis and Admiral Fallow member Sarah Hayes. As one half of Field Music, Brewis has been honing the craft of pop songwriting for almost 15 years, while Sarah Hayes has been exploring contemporary folk in her solo work and the world of indie-pop via her band Admiral Fallow. Their debut self-titled album, the last to be recorded at the old Field Music recording HQ, is released on Memphis Industries.

After meeting at a Kate Bush celebration concert, the pair clicked. "I'™d been an admirer of Field Music for a good while before meeting Peter at the gig,"€ Sarah recalls. "So I was pleased to discover he wasn'€™t an insufferable diva, and delighted that he was keen to try working on some music together." Peter had been "blown away"€ by Sarah'€™s voice during a rendition of This Woman's Work and, when investigating her solo work, heard a lot of parallels to what he was trying to do in Field Music.

By blending their distinct compositional talents they'€™ve created a record that possesses their own clear styles but also a new voice too. With both of them writing songs and lyrics, Peter describes it as "œa sort of dual-personal record."€ Sonically, the result is a subtly crafted album with a rich and intricate sense of composition, in which strings glide above multi-layered keyboards and percussion and vocal melodies wrap around one another in snug unison. In many senses it feels like a classic songwriter record - rich in craft, songs, arrangements and vocal interplay - yet it manages to feel stylistically contemporary and void of nostalgia.
