Australian pop outfit Gold Fields make '80s new wave-influenced dance-pop. Formed in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia in 2010, Gold Fields feature vocalist Mark Robert Fuller, guitarist Vin Andanar, keyboardist Rob Clifton, bassist Luke Peldys, and drummer Ryan D'Sylva. In 2010 they released the ebullient debut single “Treehouse” and subsequently released a self-titled EP in 2011. With heavy support from national community radio broadcaster Triple J, Gold Fields was soon playing dates at the Falls Festival, Field Day, Groovin The Moo and Parklife, as well as support slots for Crystal Castles, Datarock, and Pnau. They’ve also gone down a storm at intimate venues in Los Angeles, New York and London, where the band supported SBTRKT and The Naked and Famous.
In 2013, Gold Fields delivered their debut full-length album, “Black Sun”, featuring the single “Dark Again”. “Black Sun” debuted at #32 on the National ARIA Albums Chart and #7 on the ARIA Australia Artist Albums Chart. In the US, “Black Sun” debuted at #14 on Heatseekers Charts and “Dark Again” #36 on Hot Modern Rock Tracks Charts. Named as one of MTV's Artists To Watch In 2013 in Australia and nominated for an MTVU Woodie Award for Breaking Artist in the US, the band's shiny pulsating debut album was named Triple J's coveted Feature Album Of The Week and was praised by many rave reviews on release.
