Relaying the sounds of the 60s with a Mancunian twist. 5-piece garage-rockers The Big Peach have a new slice of jangle rock goodness to unveil, and it landed via Sour Grapes Records.
Flexing their studio muscle as of late with the singles ‘Run and Hide,’ ‘Down So Long,’ ‘All You Gotta Do Is Ask,’ not to mention a full ten-track album in 2018, this is another real statement of intent from the Manchester group, who are firmly cementing their place as one of the hardest working, go-to bands since their formation in 2017.
Delving deep into vintage pop-rock, with a hint of garage and psychedelia, The Big Peach’s inimitable tones are turning the heads and pricking up the ears of some of the biggest names in the business. In fact, they’ve shared stages with the likes of The Blinders, Levitation Room, The Dandelion, The Lathums and Goa Express. Plus, they’ve graced festivals across the country with Idles, Sports Team, Ocean Colour Scene, Doves, Echo and the Bunnymen and more.
Ending their year with a bang, ‘Sad’ is a real-talk foot-tapping single that encompasses everything the band represents – straight from the heart rock and roll that’s undeniably infectious and downright addictive. It features classic vocal hooks, swinging drums, rhythmic piano stabs and intricate guitar work that adds layers upon layers of texture. On creating the record, they added:
“We’ve decided to release ‘Sad’ now because even though the title is sad the song is very uplifting with a touching sentiment. I feel that the song is sort of a social commentary on modern relationships with materialism often at their centre.
‘Sad’ came to me within minutes. The chords, riff, melody and lyrics all flew out and it felt like the first time I had written a properly polished song naturally. I think this song is relatable, it explores the impact of mental health on intimate relationships, capitalism and materialism as a false sense of happiness. I hope people will be able to relate to the lyrics and I hope the melody and the music behind it will get people dancing as it’s upbeat. It’s a mirror song. You think it’s going to be sad and it reflects back to happiness in the feel of it.”
