Melbourne’s Crayon Fields have taken a leaf out of Aleks And The Ramps’ book by covering Roxette’s ‘It Must Have Been Love’ for a free tour EP.
The band’s “sultry” take on the classic power ballad follows The Ramps’ ‘No Se Si Es Amor’, a Spanish version of the song complete with banjo and electronic blips, which appeared on the band’s debut full-length Pisces Vs. Aquarius. Crayon Fields’ take is currently available for free download via Bandcamp, along with a vinyl-only B-side ‘How Loved You Are’, a live version of ‘Graceless’ from second album All the Pleasures Of the World and a remix of that album’s title track by Dan Block.
Collectively titled Make Peace With Love, the digital EP coincides with the band’s first proper US tour: 12 dates all up, including a stop-off in New York for CMJ. It follows a brief trip to SxSW, LA and New York in March, which you can read about here.
Before they head off to the States, Crayon Fields will play a headline farewell show at the East Brunswick Club in Melbourne on October 1 with Darren Sylvester and Hit the Jackpot in support. They’re also scheduled to perform at the Parklife Festival in Melbourne on October 2.
