Field Mouse Headlines First Show Tomorrow Night at Mercury LoungeJuly 20th, 2012
Rachel Browne (vocals and guitar) and Andrew Futral (guitar) initially began making dream-pop music as a duo called Field Mouse. Together they crafted songs about love and loss filled with expansive sounds and lush harmonies. But they wanted something bigger, so they added Danielle DePalma (bass) and Geoff Lewit (drums) to flesh out their sound, which falls somewhere between shoegaze and power pop. Since the release of You Are Here in 2010, Field Mouse (above, doing “Happy” for breakthruradio.com) has built a following by releasing songs one at a time—rather than a full album—and playing lots of live shows, like tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge, which is the band’s first time performing as the headliner.
