Peers biography

PEERS is the sound of four teenagers from Reading with a fondness for Rihanna, noise and cats. Forming in January 2010 after welcoming final member and lead guitarist into the fold, the band sold out their first show in the same month and have since gone on to play the BBC Introducing stages at Reading and Leeds Festival this summer. Demos were recorded in May and received plays on NME Radio and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music soon after, with Huw Stephens naming ‘Football’ as tip of the week on BBC Radio 1 in August. Typically adolescent in energy and unabashed optimism; theirs is a mellow brand of grunge pop, laden with exuberant guitar hooks tinged with melancholy hope. Citing Arcade Fire, Wild Nothing and Sonic Youth as influences, this band sing about teenage heartbreak and good times with breathless abandon, untainted by adulthood.
