Introducing: Peaness

PeanessLet’s take a moment to get the hilarity of this band’s name out of the way, so we can get down to the important stuff. According to their Facebook page, Peaness are labelling their genre as “pea-pop”, so we can only assume they’re pronouncing their name like “finesse” rather than its more phallic alternative.

MOVING ON. What a pleasure it is to introduce you to Peaness – a DIY three-piece from Chester building a colourful collection of raucous indie pop. The band formed back in 2014 after the ladies (Rach, Balla and Jess) met at the University of Chester and decided to get a bit more serious about what was only originally “a bit of fun” at the time.

Still sounding like they are having plenty of fun, Peaness have since spent a great deal of time gigging around the UK and working on their releases. Their debut EP “No Fun” came out in August last year and features four melodic and angsty tracks for toe-tapping and arm flailing. It’s a real confirmation that venting is so much more enjoyable when its set to a good drum beat and supported by memorable riffs.

Peaness’s most recent record “Oh George” is a sweet and smartly constructed delight with a vintage punky feel. Complete with tight harmonies and a truly delicious bridge, it’s good evidence of a band who know what they’re doing with their music – we are just going to have to trust that they know what they’re doing with their band name too.
