I popped into Rough Trade East on my way home from work on Tuesday for the Peace in-store in support of their new album ‘Happy People’ which was released on Monday – that same night they played a sold out NME show at Heaven – which unfortunately I missed so I was glad to get the chance to go along to Rough Trade. They played a handful of tracks from ‘Happy People’ as well as a few old favourites (Lovesick, California Daze and Wraith). From the new album we got to hear the title track, single Money, I’m A Girl and Someday – the latter being a guaranteed tearjerker (well, unless that was just me) – I love their ability to provide the slower tunes alongside the big grunge-y guitar numbers such as Wraith and new song I’m A Girl.
I was at the Rough Trade instore when Peace launched their first album back in 2013 and they were already a superb live band then so it’s great to see them back with another record of instantly catchy tunes, see below for a video of the band taking you through their album track by track in their own unique style!
