Field Medic Announces New Album ‘light is gone 2’, Shares Video for New Song

    Field Medic, the moniker of LA-based singer-songwriter Kevin Patrick Sullivan, has announced a new album titled light is gone 2. The follow-up to last year’s Grow Your Hair Long If You’re Wanting to See Something That You Can Change is out September 1 via Run For Cover Records. Chris Walla mixed the LP, which is led by the single ‘everything’s been going so well’. Check it out below.

    The new album finds Sullivan diving into the electronic elements he incorporated on his earlier recordings, including Field Medic’s debut album, light is gone. “I’ve always loved Trap music and New Wave music,” he explained in a statement. “I used to try and incorporate those with keyboards and beats back in my lofi days, but now I feel like I’ve finally figured those elements out.”

    “I started recording some of these songs at the same time as the last record,” Sullivan added. “I was feeling a bit bored of making folk music and was listening to a lot of Trap music, and it inspired me to experiment more with digital recording and different kinds of production. At the time I felt like I didn’t really have the skills to make the songs sound the way I wanted them to, so I set them aside. But then this past year I spent more time working on my side project, paper rose haiku, and learning more about production. I started to dive back into the songs, just trying to use new sounds that I wouldn’t normally use, intentionally trying to make them not like acoustic folk songs.”
