PEAKES – Saint

PEAKES

Meet Leeds-based band PEAKES.

Having used a lot of Far Eastern-inspired synths and percussion in their previous single, ‘Pray For You’, ‘Saint’ takes a slightly different tack with more country-edged riffs. The song is another great example of PEAKES’ ability to write confessional lyrics whilst maintaining an overall soft approach in their production, which all in all creates a highly atmospheric setting.

‘Saint’ is out now.

Sounds like: Massive Attack, Portishead, London Grammar

Otzeki – All This Time

Otzeki

London based duo, Otzeki, have just shared the video for ‘All This Time’.

The video is made up of footage recorded on vocalist Mike’s iPhone over the past two years in various locations including LA, London and Cambridge. “It a visual diary of things,” explains Mike. “Like our previous videos the subject matter is contained within everyday reality and gives it a certain enigmatic quality in line with the themes of the song.”

The blues-ridden and minimal intro of ‘All This Time’ slowly envelopes us with its sub soul vocals, sensual bass lines, tribal tones, and echoes of rave culture, eventually leading to an intimate and dreamy climax.

The track has been mixed by Nathan Boddy (James Blake, S.W.E.A.T).

They play the Sebright Arms in London on 23 March.

With this in mind, you’d expect the video to be filmed in black and white, but it’s refreshingly colourful!

Rob Bravery – You Take Half

What’s half of nothing? Well, “nothing” you might answer, but that isn’t strictly true with our next act, Rob Bravery, who is altering perspectives on ‘You Take Half’.
