Speaking to NME about his band's second album Koisser said that touring the world and Bowie have inspired his "fuzzy, sexy groove rock" songs. Discussing a "comeback" single he wrote and recorded in November 2013, Koisser says he tried to recreate the sound of an orchestra on a 12-string guitar. He admitted: "That came from listening to 'Ziggy Stardust...' on repeat."
Meanwhile, broadening their horizons beyond Birmingham and the Midlands has also informed new Peace songs. Koisser said: "I'm more inspired on the road than I ever was at home. I'd never seen anything up until touring i'd never even seen England. Now we've been to Japan and America seeing other cultures."
