Mansfield are clearly influenced by 1960s Mersey Sound of Liverpool, as well as the likes of Oasis and Travis. Somewhat inevitably that results in a ‘classic’ indie sound that may not break new ground, but who cares when they can write tunes like ‘Please, Shine A Light’.”

Their sound displays their influences, The Beatles, The Kinks and The Smiths, whom I love and grew up listening to. Mansfield has a great goal, to write high quality songs that are relatable. Their latest single ‘A Place in the Sun’ is a great example of this!”

“Mansfield’s music is heartfelt, joyous and melancholy at the same time. Many of the songs sound like old classics that other artists could easily have written. However, the fact that we are Scandinavian sets us apart from other groups within the genre, because your roots and your cultural context will always shine through in your music.”

“Mansfield is een Deense rock-formatie en met Please, Shine a Light brachten ze deze maand een lekkere, haast Britpop-achtige (of een beetje Beatles?) track uit. De band heeft al diverse hits op de Deense radio achter hun naam staan. Afgaande op de sound lijkt ons het ook prima passen in onze Nederlandse hitlijsten. Want zeg nou zelf, stilzitten is best lastig he?”
