Rough Fields – Watery Fable



WRITTEN FOR GOBSHOUT

Out Now
Bomb Shop

When James Birchall holed himself in a studio with booze and instruments during a period of seclusion at the close of 2010, he took the alter ego Rough Fields

‘Watery Fable’ is a concoction of urban folk dashed with electronica and harmony that tells a fictional tale of two abandoned tribe members living in their homeland.

After a promising start of ambient vocals and toned down plucky electric guitars, ‘Watery Fable’ begins to fall too far into its own story and drifts into nothingness for the final two minutes to create little other than a lacklustre soundtrack to the demise of a civilisation.
