Field Music are a band from Sunderland, England who formed in 2004. The band's core consists of brothers David and Peter Brewis (who at one time played drums for fellow Sunderland band The Futureheads), with Andrew Moore. Their line-ups have at times featured members of both Maxïmo Park and The Futureheads. Previous incarnations include The New Tellers and Electronic Eye Machine.

Field Music released their eponymous debut album in August 2005. A collection of B-sides and earlier songs, "Write Your Own History", was released in May 2006. Their second album, "Tones of Town", was released on January 22 2007.

In an interview with BBC 6 Music in April 2007 the band claimed they were intending to split once the promotional engagements for "Tones of Town" were completed in June 2007. [ [ Field Music to hibernate] ]

We basically want to do things that aren't classed as 'Field Music indie band'. We're not going to be a band for a bit. But Field Music aren't going to be over because we've already got a bank account under the name, so we'll just continue as a company. It's time to go and do some real work.

Field Music has in fact confirmed that the band has not split. On their official website the band members address the issue and reassure fans as they are still a band, they simply wish it to be known that the band is a by-product of their existence, not their reason for it.

David Brewis released an album as School of Language in February 2008 through Memphis Industries (in the UK and Ireland) and Thrill Jockey Records (in the US and Europe). Peter Brewis has recorded an album under the name The Week That Was which was released on 18th August 2008.
