Paul Smith and Peter Brewis are best known for their bands Maxïmo Park and Field Music, respectively, but this year they’ve collaborated on a very different-sounding project. The new album Frozen By Sight pairs lyrics based on Smith’s travel writing with lovely chamber arrangements by Brewis. Below you can listen to the elegant “Exiting Hyde Park Towers” check out and a trio of UK tour dates set up for this December.
12/18 – Manchester @ Band on the Wall
12/19 – London @ St Giles-in-the-Fields
12/20 – Gateshead @ Sage
Frozen By Sight is out 11/17 via Memphis Industries.
