SideFields is a London based Indie / Surf / Shoegaze project comprising eclectic flavours and diverse musical background.

Drawing on inspiration in

the multi layered guitar work of Johnny Marr drawing further influences from

likes of Suede, The Jesus & Mary Chain, John Cale, The Raveonettes and

The National. While never actually listening to a whole punk album, Punk’s

approach has crept inside the music too.

SideFields had developed a modest but loyal following in Tel Aviv, where the

band has recorded its first EP which was self produced, and mixed by Simon

Vinestock (Blur, Echobelly, Tears For Fears, Thin Lizzy). In 2007 London was

calling and it was time for a new life to commence.

During 2008 – 2009 SideFields turned into a studio project and recorded an

album of demos, called Time For Reconstruction. The album has never been

released officially, though some of the tracks from it are still being played live

and one of them found its way to the following album.

The majority of SideFields’s newest album, The Night, was written in a blaze

of creativity during early 2014, added by a few songs that were written

between 2012-2014. Showcasing the best collection of SideFields songs, they

were recorded with no compromises or time constraints offering a journey

through one man’s mind. Itay describes The Night as “ zealous, light hearted

joys of stepping out and exploring London’s hidden treasures through positive

forward looking hymns of self-belief “. With a music video being shot for the

single “The Night Is Ours” and some raving reviews in different blogs and

press, The Night shows signs of becoming a surprising force in the next few


Along his way Itay was joined by Ed Kontargyris on drums and Marino Donati

on bass. Their contribution to the band’s sound is unmistakable and gave the

songs the live element the need to thrive on stage as well as on record.

SideFields constantly perform the London pub and are looking forward to tour

the new album in 2015 in the UK and Europe.
