Perfect Body released the sweet dreamgaze song “Fields” last week as part of a split EP with Zac White, which comes out November 23rd on Bubblewrap Collective.
Perfect Body formed in Cardiff, Wales in early 2017, inspired by the sonic experimentation of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Their earliest performances took place in Cardiff’s underground, often in practice spaces and house parties: By the time Perfect Body emerged on the music scene, they had already sculpted a distinctive sonic identity. The attention gained from their first single, “Getting Cold”, saw them supporting the likes of Jen Cloher, Slowcoaches, and The Wytches.
Perfect Body’s sound is characterized by its noisy, psychedelic guitar-playing, icy, ethereal synthesizers, and a muscular, yet dynamic rhythm section. Their three vocalists, each with their own style and identities, ensure that Perfect Body’s performances are varied and engaging. Perfect Body is a wall of noise, hazing over and obscuring what is, at its core, pop-oriented songwriting.
The Big Takeover is deeply pleased to host the premiere of the performance video for the languorously and dreamily drifting “Fields”. The song is the sonic equivalent of laying back in a meadow of soft, long grasses and delicate wildflowers and watching the white clouds pass by in a pale blue sky.
The video is more vivid in nature, featuring each band member playing in front of different boldly colored, neon-illuminated grids. Take a look and be swept away by the band’s transporting sound.
