Peace live at The Lexington, London - Review

By
With a name like 'Peace', a logo using the peace sign and some baggy-ass leathers adorning this four-piece, you might expect a Hendrix tribute act shooting the vibes tonight.

Instead, we get the latest hottest band in indie whose frontman Harrison Koisser trills like David Brent's Eric Hitchmo talks, and it's glorious.

'1998' (a Binary Finary trance cover) is both dingy and brooding enough to have come off the last Horrors record. 'California Daze', although a good 8 minutes long, has us hanging on to its every last finger-picking fuzz.

They even get the confetti out for final track and latest single 'Bloodshake', a body-grooving hoedown with a pop-pivotted punch that recalls Vampire Weekend at their grungiest.

Peace swank about on stage like they don't care but with tunes like this it's hard to believe there's no red-hot desire inside these Brummie upstarts to join Jake Bugg in KOing all evil.

Next year's debut album, guided by Arctic Monkeys' Mercury-wining producer Jim Abbiss, will be something to look out for.
