Light Cycle 03:04


Beyond These Fields is a musical collaboration between instrumentalist, producer and sound designer Dan West (Cookin’ On Three Burners) and drummer Rory McDougall (The Putbacks). Melding vintage analogue synthesizers with live crunchy drums, Beyond These Fields create nostalgically futuristic sounds reminiscent of vintage sci-fi soundtracks, inspired by the rush of levelling up on 80s arcade games. Launched initially as an immersive performance for Melbourne Fringe Festival, the duo are proud to release their debut 7 inch single on new independent label Audible Artefacts.

A side ‘Dragon’s Lair’ comes out of the gates with anthemic drums and synths, ascending through multiple levels of a digital fantasy world inspired by the Don Bluth arcade game of the same name. Dominated by a Roland Juno 60, a brief bass breakdown builds to a finale that indicates you’ve made it to the next level - game on player! The B side ‘Light Cycle’ opens with a crackling electronic pulse that gives way to snappy drums and waves of arpeggiated synth that create a dark and dirty world of electronic mayhem before one by one the layers fall away and the track retreats into the darkness from which it came.
