Peace unveil rousing new single ‘Power’

Peace have got the power....

Peace have returned with ‘Power’, one of their most confrontational and guitar-driven anthems to date.

The rousing track is a marked contrast to the soul-searching emotion of their last single ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ which was released in support of the mental health research charity MQ last December.

Describing the track, frontman Harry Koisser explained how it was inspired by an enormous lightning storm that took place as they recorded with Bat For Lashes producer Simon Felice in America.

“I watched a giant, pulsating, lightening bolt land near the farmhouse & I instantly associated it with the electricity and power of the kids we’d been quaking with for the last five years at our shows”, Koisser said.

“I was inspired to write a song that was answer to their question. I guess it ended up being a call to arms.  Power is a song about booting down the door to delirious glory & charging heart first into the world-wide banquet of love.”

Although they’re yet to announce the follow up to 2015’s Happy People, Peace will also make their live return next week with a sold out NME Awards Show at Omeara, before headlining  Live At Leeds and Liverpool Sound City in May.
