PREVIEW: Peace @ The Rainbow Warehouse, Dec 22nd

Birmingham’s psychedelic indie rock starlets, Peace, are playing a Christmas homecoming on Dec 22nd at The Rainbow Warehouse. Clue’s in the title.

With their new single, ‘Wraith’, scheduled for a mid January release – the brothers Koisser & Co are sandwiching a big Birmingham bash, between gigs at The Glasslands Gallery in New York and KOKO in London.

Hotly tipped for 2013, Peace have already had a good year. Formed in late 2011, Peace’s ‘dark melodic indie techno’ has accumulated a caravan of fans (oh yeah, it’s hippy references), spawned a debut EP – ‘Delicious’ and even attract some national press plaudits; not an easy thing to do outside the M25.

Signed to Columbia Records pretty bloody quickly, it was Peace’s first single – ‘Follow Baby’, released on Deadly People Recordings that kick started their attention.

The Guardian called them ‘ambitious’, The Fly called them ‘fucking golden’, and the NME stuck them on a ‘Top Songs’ list and cited them as one of the bands behind ‘B-Town’ – like some Kings Reach Simon Cowell.

Peace have also been nominated for the BBC’s ‘Sound of 2013’ poll.

Birmingham Review last saw Peace support Editors on June 26th, at the HMV Institute.

Peace‘s last gig at The Rainbow Pub sold out, so this time Birmingham Promoters are putting them on The Rainbow Warehouse, with a few friends to keep them company.
