Single of the Week August 05/2013: Gold Fields "Thunder"

Our new Single of the Week is "Thunder" by Australian indie dance quintet Gold Fields.

The song has been on high rotation on KRR for a few months now, and is taken from the band's well received debut album 'Black Sun', released in March via Astralwerks. 

'Black Sun' is the product of a journey that began in the summer of 2011, when the band decamped to Los Angeles to spend six weeks working with producer Mickey Petralia (Ladytron, Peaches) and then retreated to a remote Australian farm manor to continue writing songs, which they later recorded with Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Sleepy Jackson, Silverchair) as co-producer/engineer. However, after learning a lot from both Horscroft and Petralia, Gold Fields decided to re-record and produce the whole album themselves in Mark's parents garage in Ballarat.

Thunder, like most of the songs on the album, is catchy and danceable. Below, you can watch fan footage of the band performing the song live in Brisbane.
