"On The Other Side" is a powerful reminder of the group's songwriting ability: they create vivid, alt-pop hymns for the millennial generation. With their new track, it sees them tap into the mutated disco that sits somewhere between Robyn and Metronomy.
The track was produced by MyRiot (Aurora, Rae Morris, London Grammar) and demonstrates a powerful step forward in the group's songwriting whilst still maintaining an understated elegance that makes them such an exciting proposition.
Singer Molly Puckering on the track: “I often feel like I’m coasting through life and ‘going through the motions’ of it all. I think I find it quite easy to become disengaged and disassociated from what I’m doing and I can slip into repetitive behaviours that aren’t benefiting me. This song is about those moments when you need that other person to pull you out from that place. Someone else who can offer that new perspective you desperately need.”
Peakes make loneliness feel like the most seductive experience in the world. True outsiders, the Leeds based three-piece match their precocious musicality with ambient electronics and surging melodies, to create a divine sense of sound and space.
