A pop sensibility inflected with the sounds of his native South Africa and a penchant for offbeat lyricism characterise M Field’s output, having first risen to prominence as lead singer and songwriter in Beatenberg, a band formed in Cape Town alongside Robin Brink and Ross Dorkin. Their debut album The Hanging Gardens of Beatenberg received rapturous acclaim for its unique synthesis of influences, and had record breaking chart success in South Africa. The band subsequently made appearances on Jimmy Fallon and Jools Holland.
M Field has also kept busy frequently collaborating with Tresor. Their platinum single ‘Aphrodite’ appeared on Tresor’s album Nostalgia, an album which went on to win ‘Best Pop Album’ at 2019s South African Music Awards.
Following the release of his successful self titled debut EP last year, M Field is now ready to share his, much anticipated, new material. EP number two, Re: M Field, is out now!
