It's a rare feat in today's electronic music world to find an act that is comprised of impressive musicians playing actual instruments, but Gold Fields is one of the few exceptions. After taking three tries to perfect their debut album, Black Sun, the Australian quintet finally released it to the world, expounding upon their desire for perfecting a sound that is uniquely catchy and makes you want to bob your head to the infectious, tribal beats. Since then, the band has been preparing for a North American tour by raising funds through their Kickstarter Campaign.
Today, we're premiering Gold Fields' remix of "Alive" by fellow Aussies Empire of the Sun. The track starts out in a trance and eventually builds into an incredibly catchy chorus that combines an 80s dance feel with modern house rhythm and percussion. Be sure to check out the great rewards the band has offered up for donating to their Kickstarter and check their tour schedule to see when they'll be coming to a city near you.
