Acfields of Gold

When it came to childhood car trips, brother and sister Dan and Hannah Acfield spent more time harmonising than they did fighting. After spending some time performing as solo artists, they came to the decision that two Acfields were better than one, and set about making some tunes together.
In 2012 The Acfields released their debut, the double A-side ‘After You/Sorry I’ve Taken So Long’. The EP Turning a Page would follow, as would tours and supports alongside the likes of Joan Armatrading, The Trouble with Templeton, Josh Pyke, Lakyn Heperi and Vika & Linda Bull. Now you can feast on their self-titled debut.
From the band: “For the last 12 months we have been focusing on songwriting – writing a song a week between us. We wrote individually and together. The result is a collection of songs that we’re extremely proud of.  In September 2013, we headed into an amazing house on the Mornington Peninsula to record 11 of these songs as part of our debut album. We hired (and borrowed) recording equipment and set up a temporary studio in the house and spent a week recording … We are so excited to share these songs! The recording sounds fantastic; it’s warm and authentic.”
