Peaness – Same Place

• “Same Place” original music video. Thanks to Peaness Band.

8.2 “Fantastic Indie from England”

First out as a digital download single in January, 2017, then included on their “No Fun” EP released in May, 2017.

“This music video took much longer to complete than originally planned, due to Jess’s hair merging with the green screen. Thank you for your patience.”

Perfectionists, see? Good job Peaness. They describe their work as “slow-punk, fuzz-pop, indie pop and DIY – it’s got to have that punk ethic, but be a bit more polished.

All of the above. I might add soaraway indiepop goodness that recalls Darling Buds, Sleater-Kinney and Sleeper. Lush!

Spawned of the University of Chester in late 2014, the trio are: Jess (bass), Balla (guitar) and Rach (drums). Speaking to Music Glue Jess said:

“We started practising in Rach’s bedroom after two of us graduated. Rach was still at uni in the year below me and Balla. We were just messing around – but with a full drum kit and amps – in a terraced house. Rach moved back home to Birmingham for a bit, but when she moved back to Chester we decided to give it a proper go. It was all just a bit of a laugh to start with!”

Sensibly, all three members still balance regular employment with the growing demands of the band:

“It’s best to do as much as you can yourself. The joy of the DIY scene is always knowing exactly what’s going on, having control, not being told what to do and not being afraid to say “no” to things. We say “no” to loads of stuff, so we don’t wear ourselves out.”

Heard on Mark Whitby’s January 2017 show on Dandelion Radio.
