Peace played their biggest headline show to date last night, topping the bill at Club NME's annual New Year's Eve party at Camden's Koko.

The Birmingham quartet, who were supported earlier in the night by newcomers Luls, played a storming 40-minute set, coming on just after the New Year celebrations at midnight.

Opening with recent single 'Wraith', the band - led by singer Harrison Koisser, who was sporting a festively green, sequinned outfit for the occasion - then tore through the entirety of debut EP 'Delicious' as well as previous single 'Follow Baby' and B-side 'Lil' Echo'.

The band, who were in typically jovial spirits, also broke into the chorus of Cyndi Lauper hit 'True Colours', sparking a crowd singalong, before continuing with the rest of the set.

Introducing the track as 'One from our album' (which is to be released this spring), Peace then played an anthemic new track entitled 'Toxic', which received its first public airing at the group's Christmas hometown show, whilst Koisser jokingly told the crowd that for New Year they wanted "More Doug" (ie Douglas Castle, the band's guitarist).

Peace are set to join Palma Violets, Miles Kane and headliners Django Django on the NME Awards Tour next month, kicking off on February 7 in Newcastle and winding up at London's Brixton Academy on February 23.

Peace played:
'True Colours'
'Follow Baby'
'Lil' Echo'
'Ocean's Eye'
'California Daze'
