2. Follow Baby
As rave culture reached its peak and Brit-pop conquered the world, Harrison Koisser, Samuel Koisser, Douglas Castle and Dominic Boyce were born in the West Midlands of England. Drawn together through the most ordinary circumstances (two are brothers and they went to the same college) they began to make extra-ordinary music as one. Since then they have existed as Peace, a band who are tipped to lead the way for an exciting new generation of British guitar music.
The buzz around their demo 'BBlood' generated plenty of excitement about the band’s live performances and when they played up and down the country last year audiences were blown away by a set mixing dance music, walls of noise and the pop that attracted them in the first place.
The dynamic in their music results from teenage forays into experimental music, an intelligent approach to genre-referencing and a love of art-rock staples showed the band the possibilities of combining approachable and exciting music with avant-garde sensibilities.
‘Follow Baby’ is their first single proper and a demonstration of their songwriting prowess and combined influences. With elements of ‘baggy’ and grunge, a loping groove and a chorus to sing-along to, Peace have fused an intoxicating mix of styles together to create something new, exciting and hard to categorise.
