Band release third album 'Kindness is The New Rock And Roll' this week
Peace have shared a Wes Anderson-inspired video for their track ‘You Don’t Walk Away From Love’. Scroll below to watch.
The Birmingham band release third album ‘Kindness is The New Rock And Roll’ this Friday (May 4).
Recently unveiling the song ‘You Don’t Walk Away From Love’, the band described it as a track “about the colours of the heart that live under the cool pastels and monochrome chequers”.
Their video for the track was shot in one take and pays homage to the famous tent scene in Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. Watch beneath.
Frontman Harry Koisser says of the video: “This is a classy and expensive video for a deep and meaningful song. If that is wrong then I don’t wanna be right. It reminds me that outside of the grit, spit & uglier bits, there is still some good left in this world. Pure ecstatic natural love is out there waiting for you to illegally download it. This really is a sandwich for the eyes.”
Director Jonnie Craig adds: “We wanted to work with the effects of colour on people and their emotions, to kind of visualise what it feels like to be in love. Shooting on film is the only way. We grew up with imagery shot on film, so all of our photographic based memories live in that rich grainy colour spectrum. I think it strikes a chord with people that digital never could.”
In a four-star review, NME‘s Rhian Daly recently wrote of ‘Kindness is The New Rock And Roll’: “On their third album, the Birmingham four-piece are more outspoken than ever, this time around putting their message front and centre.”
