In its debut record, Black Sun, Gold Fields infuses its brand of melodic rock with tribal drums and expansive synthesizers -- think early Duran Duran, but in space. The Aussie group is also on a North American tour in support of its premiere album. Check out some of our favorite tracks, and watch Gold Fields perform live in Dallas, May 20. Follow Yahoo! On the Road for tour updates and the full schedule.

Happy Boy -- A fantastic introductory track for new listeners, Gold Fields fills “Happy Boy” with lush atmospheres set to cruise control.

Thunder -- The tempo remains steady on this incredibly catchy tune and a quick percussive bridge unleashes a frenzied boogie back into the chorus.

Treehouse -- Gold Fields’ new wave daydream is forever romantic, getting those butterflies in your stomach rumbling and blood pumping.

Closest I Could Get -- With a thumping bass line and endearing vocals, “Closest I Could Get” sounds like it could have come right out of the 1980s.

The Woods -- Tropical beats and synthesizer swirls take you to beach paradise in outer space.
