Foreign Fields, the Lush Ambient Indie Rock Duo Shares, “Glowworm”

A personal, gorgeous sonically textured new single

The lush ambient indie-rock Wisconsin-based duo Foreign Fields are excited to share their personal, gorgeous sonically textured new single, “Glowworm.” Brian Holl and Eric Hillman of Foreign Fields have spent the last few years trying to simplify their lives. Now with a live band together consisting of their long-time musical companions Nate Babbs (drums) and Nick Morawiecki (guitar), ideas were shared, songs were sketched in real-time, and they focused on no longer being so precious about their band’s output. 

Now with a new single buoyed by friendship, the power of collaborative spirit, and a reimagining of all that the band stands for. Foreign Fields is as loose and free as they’ve ever sounded while retaining the vibrant shimmer that has always provided the band’s beating heart. 

Following “Damages,” and “Faultlines,” “Glowworm” was recorded at Hive in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, with engineer Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Volcano Choir), and details the uneasy feeling of time passing. Written by Brian Holl from the perspective of watching his daughter grow up, he reveals, “Most of the time I’m ecstatic to watch her grow up, but there have been moments where I find myself trying everything I can to slow it all down. “I figured that the end would be different this time” is about that foolish pursuit.” 

Glowworm begins this new chapter and follows a body of work that includes three full-length albums spanning the previous decade. Eric and Brian saw it then, as they do now, as the end of a chapter, the final part of a trilogy where they found answers to the questions they’d previously posed.

How do you feel about “Glowworm” from Foreign Fields?
