“you deserve attention” By Field Medic

Los Angeles artist Kevin Patrick Sullivan AKA; Field Medic, is releasing his latest album, light is gone 2, this Friday, September 1st, via Run For Cover Records, and today he’s sharing one more early taste with “you deserve attention.”

Arriving less than a year after Sullivan’s 2022 album, Grow Your Hair Long If You’re Wanting to See Something That You Can Change, light is gone 2 marks a sonic shift, deconstructing Field Medic as we know it in order to start an exciting new chapter. Recorded on Sullivan’s computer at home and then mixed by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, Tegan and Sara, The Decemberists).

Field Medic on “you deserve attention”:

“The initial feeling of writing the song was one of falling out of love, which leads to the chorus where I’m imagining my partner out having fun and potentially meeting someone else. Those thoughts stem from anxiety at first, until I realize that they’d be better off with someone who can give them the care and affection they deserve, because all I was doing at the time on any given day was drinking alone in my room. I didn’t love myself enough to love someone else.”
