Their drummer is related to Michael J Fox. Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood once swapped a pair of trousers for a copy of their demos. They were approached by a record label after playing a track by the Spice Girls at a party. They once got into a fight with Finley Quaye at an after-party when he became jealous the band were getting more female attention than he was. These are the rumours. What’s known to be true is this; they make damn good music, and know how to have a good time doing it.
Peace are one of B-Town’s hottest exports. They’ve supported the likes of Mystery Jets and Manic Street Preachers. They’ve had their faces plastered on a billboard in the heart of Digbeth. They’ve been signed to a major record label, and early last month they released their debut EP, entitled ‘Delicious,’ to rave reviews left, right, and centre.
Their songs are a blend of sunshine vibes, scorching refrains, and something a little bit saucy. Simply put, their music is hot. Formed by Koisser brothers Harrison and Sam, Douglas Castle, and Dominic Boyce, the four-piece Birmingham group make a sound that you can’t quite define, but you don’t want to stop hearing. This addictive sound has quickly earned them a dedicated following, and with the recording and production of their debut album well underway, audiences have been flocking to catch ‘the next big thing’ on the road before they really take off.
Fueled by confetti cannons, leaving graffitied peace signs in their wake, this is a band that have been stirring up a storm, and they won’t be fading away any time soon. Keep up to date with their antics on Facebook and Twitter.
