Formed in late 2014 in Chester university digs, the three-piece band Peaness write catchy, fuzzy, harmony-driven indie-pop songs about love, friendship, frustrations, Brexit, and food waste.
The trio have been playing together since the summer of 2015, and their fun, friendship fuelled live performances have been winning the hearts and minds of people up and down the country. They have secured national and international shows with bands such as The Beths, Kero Kero Bonito, The Cribs, We Are Scientists, The Big Moon & Dream Wife. They have performed at many festivals including Green Man, Benicassim, Truck, Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Kendal Calling & Indietracks. Peaness have received backing from across the BBC, including a live 6music session with Marc Riley, multiple plays on Radio 1, 2, and 6 music and have become firm favourites on their local BBC Introducing stations BBC Radio Wales and Merseyside. The band have also received support from Radio X with a live session with John Kennedy, as well as a multitude of press coverage from Kerrang! Magazine, Rolling Stone, Dork, Clash, Drowned in Sound, and The Metro. The band have strong roots in the DIY scene, self-releasing their first EP ‘No Fun’, and releasing their critically acclaimed EP ‘Are You Sure?’ with UK independent label royalty Alcopop! They often make their own music videos, have close creative friends doing press shots and artwork, and even have their mums making handmade squeaky peas for merchandise.
“A deliriously fun piece of guitar pop racket…addictive, funny, and charming as hell” – CLASH
“Whip-smart songwriting…kick-ass indie punk” – Kerrang! Magazine
“Infectious and massively moreish” – The Skinny
“Anxious Sleep” is the first single from the Leipzig-based producer Adam Abdelkader Lenox (a.k.a. ZOUJ). After leaving quite the impression on the European underground circuit with his futuristic Noise Pop outfit Lingua Nada (think Black Midi meets Hot Chip) he decided it was time to venture down a different path. The mission? To discover and develop what modern pop music should sound and more importantly feel like. The result is the most genuine, surreal pop music you’ll hear this year. Zouj literally sounds like Zouj, and yet like so much more.
After releasing his debut mixtape Tagat last year, the follow-up Metal will drop on September 23rd 2022 via City Slang.
“Futuristic, surreal and synthetic post-hyperpop” NME
Brighton newish supergroup featuring members of Currls & Madeline North. Infectious melodies and souring synths that will leave you foaming at the mouth.
