Spin - p.933.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he mini epic 'Song for the Fields' opens with an acoustic shuffle and ends with a DOCTOR WHO-creepy keyboard incline. WINTER is an easy album to enjoy..."
Q - p.1243 stars out of 5 -- "The chilling 'Feathers' is particularly affecting, all goosebumps and bloodshot eyes, a nightmare made real."
Alternative Press - p.1684 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he lazy skyscaping chords and woozy vocals on 'School Books' out-prog even the Decembrists' latest disc..."
CMJ - p.44"With layers of dense, swirling guitars and crystalline folk harmonies....This debut introduces them as purveyors of pretty dichotomies..."

On its strikingly ambitious full-length debut, EVERYTHING LAST WINTER, the Birmingham, England-based ensemble Fields presents a bold set that fuses wistful British folk and chamber pop with amped-up indie rock, bringing to mind a jam session between Fairport Convention and Mew (see the sweeping "Charming the Flames"). Fronted by singer/multi-instrumentalist Nick Peill and Icelandic singer/keyboardist Thorunn Antonia, the group makes effective use of male/female vocals and dense, layered arrangements, leading to justifiable Arcade Fire comparisons, particularly on the explosive "Song for the Fields." Boasting sterling production by studio veteran Michael Beinhorn, EVERYTHING LAST WINTER is a dynamic and hypnotic album that marks the arrival of a considerably talented band.
