A Burial at Sea & The Low Field @ ClubHeadBangBang
Post-rock with horns and a band named after a Tralee football pitch, what more do you want...
“Fun” is hardly the first word that springs to mind when speaking of instrumental post-rock music. In a genre defined by self-seriousness, A Burial At Sea are the outsiders of the outsiders. The usual rock n’ roll setup of guitar, bass, drums is bolstered by a mini two-man horn section, which has resulted in the band to be labeled as “trumpet-core” and “post-rock mariachi”.
Following the release of their debut EP in 2017 the band began making waves in the experimental rock scene supporting genre-defining heavyweights Tera Melos and Listener. The band toured relentlessly across Europe from 2018-2019, often for a month at a time, and even resulting in the hospitalization of a band member
The Low Field formed in 2021 from members of Casavettes, Bleeding Heart Pigeons and Deadbog. Their sound takes influence from these previous projects as well as from bands further afield, with the band’s open lyricism and exploratory instrumental sections resonating well with audiences. Having won an agility award earlier this year, The Low Field are working on their debut release.
