Field School is the new solo project of Charles Bert, who made his mark in Math and Physics Club, the Seattle indie pop combo that set the bar for sugar rush melodies and chiming guitar perfection.
Field School’s debut LP When Summer Comes is a self-made tableau of vivid guitars, eclair-rich vocals, and proactive wondering. It is a treasury of reflections on happiness and loss, and how, like seasons, they pass and return.
The result is pure Olympia, Washington, in both form and essence. With nods to K Records-style crash pop and its DIY ethos, Charles creates small-scale anthems, the type of which put Olympia on the map of musical influences
