The Holy Fields The Holy Fields

This Toronto band seem like they are part of what one might call "the happy band revolution,” which has been popular in the city over the last year. With poppy songs that are easy to dance to, the Holy Fields are like a fusion of Henri Faberge and the Adorables, with a little Joel Plaskett. Featuring five songs about love, lust and all that living that happens in between, the EP is nothing but good, clean fun. There is something about a Beach Boys sensibility that is catching the ears of many, and perhaps escapism is what makes their pop sound so appealing. And, with songs like "She Knows” and "Don’t Tell Me,” it’s the band’s ability to write easy-to-remember lyrics and high-note guitar riffs that make them a hot air balloon that’s ready to fly up into the clouds.
