Nashville’s Field Division make ethereal folk-pop fronted by Evelyn Taylor’s breathy, soothing vocals, which often recall Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins. “Hollow Body Weather,” from the band’s forthcoming debut EP Reverie State, starts with acoustic guitar and builds to arena-sized bombast with synths, twinkling electronic effects and a ghostly choir. The moody synth swirls and lush orchestrations are perfect for the changing of seasons. Reverie State is out October 28. In the meantime, catch them on tour (and help them recover their gear, which was stolen in St. Louis last week — yikes!).
