Indie rockers, Peace, have had quite a year so far. 2015 has spelled the release of their second album, Happy People, which was met with critical acclaim and praise from many publications, myself included. 2015 also means a year of intense touring from the four-piece, who never seem to slow down. After the announcement of this tour, they released more shows after the wild sell-out of Brighton and London.
The band formed in Worcester in 2009. Their debut single ‘Follow Baby’ was released in early 2012, and since then it has been non-stop for the band. Signing to Columbia records, the newbies were soon well known on the music scene, through support from NME and Radio 1. Comprised of Harrison Koisser (vocals/guitar), Samuel Koisser (bass), Douglas Castle (lead guitar), and Dominic Boyce (drums), the four-piece are known for their psychadelic tunes and endless groove. Their debut album, In Love, debuted at number 16 in the UK Album Chart. They have supported the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, The Libertines and Django Django.
Overall, a faultless band, with faultless live capabilities. Every show I attend of theirs demonstrates their ever increasing ease onstage, and this tour will be no different. Their In Love era spelled the growth of the bands confidence and identity, but the Happy People era will spell professional anarchy and 90’s indie rock tunes that will get you moving.
