Susan Anway, who sang lead vocals on the first two Magnetic Fields albums -- 1991's Distant Plastic Trees and 1992's The Wayward Bus -- has passed away. The band broke the news on social media, writing:

It is with great sadness that we hear of the death of our first singer, Susan Anway. We met Susan in the 80's in Boston, when she was the singer of a local band, "V;". She sang lead vocals on the first two Magnetic Fields albums, "The Wayward Bus" and "Distant Plastic Trees". She was a lovely person and will be missed by all of us.

Rest in peace, Susan.
