Melting Vinyl presents:
Peaness + Currls
*On sale now*
Melting Vinyl are overjoyed to bring rising indie-pop trio Peaness to the The Prince Albert in January 2020. Having toured with The Beths and She Drew the Gun it’s time to see them in a small indie club!
Formed in Chester University digs in late 2014, 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 live since summer 2015, and their fun chum-fuelled performances have been winning the hearts and minds of audiences up and down the country.
They have secured nationwide and international shows with bands such as The Beths, Kero Kero Bonito, The Cribs, We Are Scientists, The Big Moon & Dream Wife, and performed at a collection of high profile festivals including Green Man, Benicassim, Truck, Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Kendal Calling and Indietracks.
Firm broadcasting favourites, Peaness have appeared live in session for BBC Radio 6 music’s Marc Riley show, are championed across the spectrum of the broadcaster’s radio stations, becoming sweethearts of 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.
Peaness 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 art work, and even have their mums making handmade squeaky peas for merchandise! Yum!
With their debut album due early 2020, the band are cited as ones to watch for the year ahead.
‘A captivating live act with the tunes to back up their growing reputation.’ – The Wee Review
Currls are part of a new wave of garage rock being spearheaded by female musicians.
First formed in 2017 with Holly on vocals and guitar, Maddy on drums and Rooney on bass guitar, this down to earth trio have steadily been making a name for themselves. Their compelling mix of punk, new wave and pop topped with raspy soul vocals has landed them on BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens Introducing Show and caught the attention of BBC Introducing Malita Dennet, who hunted them down after hearing them at The Great Escape Festival.
With two well-received singles under their belt and an eye fixed firmly on the future Currls are a band to watch in 2020.
