Birminghamís PEACE release Delicious, an EP spanning 4 songs and 21 minutes and itís bloody good. Itís full of wonderful psychedelic alt-pop, sounds you can dance to and sounds you can reminisce to and itís out now!
Opener Oceans Eye recalls Beach Fossils and moments of The Coral and itís a great start to a fascinating EP. Brooding before letting the light in, the 2 and a half minutes sets the tone for an eclectic listen.
Bloodshake sounds like members of Animal Collective dating Warpaint, thereís even some Friendly Fires in there for itís quite the hip shaking number. It maintains a lively pace throughout paving the way for such lyrics as ď weíre spitting blood in the sunĒ. The brilliant noise at the end shouts Wu Lyf.
California Daze is simply lovely evoking memories of a lost love or a summer romance, the Beatles-eque harmonies and longing guitar solo will make this a crowd favourite and already has bloggers in a stir of praise. ďOh she tastes like sunlight and sheís always going to be there in the back of your mindĒ
Closer 1998 (Delicious) stands at 10 minutes long and reminds us of tripping MGMT. itís worth persisting with as the track builds to a frenetic pace which in a live environment you can imagine creates quite the scene. Itís out there in the way Smashing Pumpkins Gish was out there.
This is an ambitious EP, full of great pop and alt-rock, itís wild in the terrain it covers and leaves us fascinated as to what will come next. Spin it!
