Peace

About Peace

Peace is a rock band from Birmingham, UK. The group consists of brothers Harrison (vocals, guitar) and Sam Koisser (bass), Douglas Castle(guitar) and Dominic Boyce (drums).

The band started getting attention in early 2012 from publications such as The Guardian and NME. Peace has been compared to The Maccabees, Wu Lyf and Vampire Weekend. They released their debut EP "EP Delicious" through Columbia Records early September 2012.

Peace formed late 2011 in Birmingham. In an interview singer Harrison Koisser said the band was started out of boredom and the name inspired by a photograph celebrating the end of World War Two.

Their first song was called "Bblood". In early 2012 the NME included them on their list of bands to watch in 2012 while Paul Lester of The Guardian called them "the future of indie". In April 2012 the band released their debut single "Follow Baby" and toured with the likes of Mystery Jets and The Vaccines.

In August 2012 the song "California Daze" was released as a free download, followed shortly thereafter by their debut EP "EP Delicious". "EP Delicious" got positive reviews by BBC and NME.

On 9 December 2012, the BBC announced that they had been nominated for the Sound of 2013 poll.

On December 10th 2012, the music video for the single "Wraith" was released.

LMFM Says: 
Birmingham natives Peace are steadily carving a tidy hole in the alt-rock scene. It would be silly to say that they are creating unique sounding music as they sound very much like a number of bands on the scene right now, however, it is the complex nature and attention-to-detail that separates them from the rest. With their debut EP 'Delicious' dropping only a short while ago, a full album release in 2013 should see them topple over the edge of the indie scene and find a nice foot-hold in the mainstream.
