"Sensitive" is the second single by The Field Mice. It was released as a 7" vinyl record on Sarah Records in February 1989, and included a fold-out poster depicting a leaf.[1] Sensitive, on which the band's sound verged on shoegazing,[2] has been described as "an anthemic statement of purpose...a defence of feeling...and a comment on the way sensitivity is criticized, or punished even".[3] The single reached number 12 in the UK Independent Chart in March that year.[4] "Sensitive" was also voted at number 26 in the 1989 Festive 50.[5] Both tracks from the single were later included on the CD reissue of the band's debut mini-album Snowball.[3]
