Fieldrush Looks Back with Music Video for “Nectarine”

West Coast power trio, Fieldrush, are gearing up for the release of their debut EP “Fundamentals” with a music video for the leading single “Nectarine”.

The video has the feel of a nostalgic montage with home videos of the band goofing around and playing shows between shots of front man Trevor Johnson singing the lyrics into the camera. Amidst the retrospective looking back, you can feel the electric charisma of the trio showing off how the trio are friends first and a band second.

“We filmed the majority of this video spontaneously while we toured and combined the footage with everything we’d filmed up until that point” says guitarist and vocalist Trevor Johnson. “We captured a lot of things we would be doing whether or not there was a camera rolling so it really is a video that embodies what it’s like to just hang out with us.”

It’s a heartwarming video despite (or perhaps because of) the goofiness of the whole thing like a time capsule of the band’s beginnings. If it manages to still feel this good in the next 5-10 years, Fieldrush will have succeeded at capturing the essence of the band and its music as something that elicits pure camaraderie and a montage of good times in the summer sun.

Alchemical Records contributing writer Cynthia Gross digs deep in her extensive coverage of “Fundamentals.”

“Nectarine” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Mutligenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.

Stay Afloat with Soft Punch — Above Water

Soft Punch, aka Rye Thomas, of Washington D.C. released his debut album, Above Water on September 15th, after years of working on it.
The album is a labor of love that Soft Punch, the stage name of Rye Thomas, has been working on for years since the diagnosis of his chronic illness. It takes you through the highs and lows, mourning the freedom lost, and celebrating the things that he is grateful for in his day to day life. I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to him about his process of writing the album.

The titles of albums are the first thing that an artist sees. That, and the artist’s name. When I first heard the name ‘Soft Punch’, I was intrigued. It was gentle but intentional. “I don’t know if I had a specific ‘A-ha, Lightbulb’ moment, but I was interested in words that sound good together and have multiple meanings,” Thomas said. “It’s a gentle hit, and a nonalcoholic punch. It’s the image of something harsh and something soft is interesting to me. I think I lucked out.”
