Those of you in the UK are probably familiar with the Communion Club Nights, which were founded in 2006 by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear's Den) and Ian Grimble. The Communion Residency showcases spotlight some fantastic up and coming acts at their monthly club nights all around the world, and with their May installment, they've also created a rad new collection of 22 tracks from those artists titled Communion Residency Sampler.

One of those bands is the Minneapolis-based alt-pop four piece Field Trip, who are gearing up to release their debut album later on this year. Today, though, we're bringing you an exclusive premiere of their contribution to the Communion Residency album - 'Gold', a lovely little tune chock full of beautiful harmonies courtesy of vocalist Ashley Boman, and light, playful instrumentals. A perfect summer tune best suited for floating down Minneapolis' Lake of the Isles on a sunny day in a canoe with your mates, it's never too loud, but just boisterous enough to bring you back in for multiple listens.

The Communion Residency sampler tracklist can be found after the song, and when you pick up your ticket to this month's gig, you'll get a copy of it for free. Head on over to their website to find out more information, and stream 'Gold' below!
