10 for 2013: #5 – Peace

By on Monday, 10th December 2012 at 11:00 am

With their EP ‘EP Delcious’ out earlier this year, Peace look to expand their watermelon-loving sounds in 2013 as they wind up to their debut album. If the Gallaghers had let loose once in a while instead of drifting into generic-ism, they might have produced something like Peace’s music over a decade ago. But they didn’t, and so the gauntlet has been taken up by a duo of brothers from Birmingham, Harrison and Sam Koisser.

Thrown through the arena-rock tunnel at a pace that’s already seen the smaller venues across the country filled to capacity with sweaty folk front to back, the sound of Peace crosses through almost all of the British icons of the last few decades and spins them through a delicate web of their own deciding. ‘Bloodshake’ wouldn’t feel out of place on a Foals record, while much of the rest of their music crosses between the grungier sides of shoegaze with the soaring vocals of Harrison Koisser over the top.

Debut single ‘Follow Baby’ pushed the band to the forefront of the summer. Their new track ‘Wraith’ (audio below) begs it to not be winter anymore, as its breakdown could easily be drenched in infinite amounts of sunshine. It’s not hard to picture Peace commanding any sized stage over the next year as it seems, with the hype that surrounds them and the song writing talents to create a sound that blends intricacy with accessibility; the only thing that holds the Columbia signings back is their own ambition.
