In a world where everything seems to be accelerating faster and faster, Fields of Naecluda (literally Fields of the Cloud Tree)
provides a welcome moment of reflection and contemplation.
Hailing from Grenoble, the capital of the French Alps, and drawing upon inspiration from pop, rock, and atmospheric metal, Fields of Naecluda invite you on a journey into the uncharted, where ambient, harmonic soundscapes give way to saturated guitars and emotional vocals.
Two years after releasing their debut album to widespread critical praise, the group returned to the studio at the end of 2021 to start working on their second album, with Chris Edrich (Leprous, The Ocean, Klone) taking charge of production.
