Based out of Brooklyn, indie rock band Field Mouse is led by songwriter Rachel Browne. The group underwent a gradual shift from early shoegaze tendencies and the dream pop of their 2014 debut, Hold Still Life, toward a more articulate blend of fuzz and jangle on subsequent albums, including 2019's Meaning. Formed by singer/guitarist Browne and multi-instrumentalist/producer Andrew Futral (The Age of Rockets) circa 2010, Field Mouse released a handful of fuzz-washed singles, including a cover of Deerhunter's "Helicopter," before adding member Saysha Heinzman on bass. Their first album, Hold Still Life, arrived on Topshelf Records in 2014. After adding keyboardist Zoë Browne and drummer Tim McCoy to the official lineup, Episodic followed in 2016. Following a brief hiatus, Browne and Futral collaborated with Kyle Gilbride (Swearin') on producing their third full-length. Meaning saw release by Topshelf in August of 2019.
