Introducing: Midfield Workhorse


Named for their favourite footballers (“the no-flair, 110% for 90 minutes kinda guys”), Midfield Workhorse are anything but average. Hailing from Kingston, Del, Dave, Rick and Andy are heavy on the guitars and strong on the vocals – not a bad thing.

Del and Dave came from (sadly departed), while Andy continues to play bass in Tellison. Midfield Workhorse’s sound is reminiscent of Coldplay and Jetplane Landing, the latter of whom they supported last September in London.

Midfield Workhorse’s debut EP is out next month, and is tentatively entitled, “Great Bunch Of Lads All The Best”. The lead song, “Lincolnshire Poacher” has been featured on BBC Introducing and Eagle3 Radio, resulting in Eagle playlisting them.

Catch Midfield Workhorse at The Old Ford, North Camp, on 18 July, followed by Guilfest on the 19th, where they’ll be taking to the Surrey Advertiser stage at about 10pm. Tickets for Guilfest are available from their website.

Find Midfield Workhorse online on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, and YouTube.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
