Peak Twins - Steppin' Off 7" (Bedroom Suck Records)


"Was not sure what to expect heading into this one. I was guessing either Spacemen 3-esque drone or schticky retro-New Wave based on the appearance of the sleeve. For the record, I actually like this band's name. The music is a bit of a surprise - "Steppin' Off" is a sort of riff on Fifties radio rock and Brit-pop in a roundabout way - like Oasis covering Roy Orbison or something. Very quaint. The B-Side is a downer called "China White", very lush sounding and straddling the line between AOR schmaltz and slightly psychedelic pop. It's a bummer, that's for sure. I liked this more than I was expecting to, but that's still not enough for me to recommend you seek it out. An interesting angle, but not enough substance to make it more than that." - TERMINAL BOREDOM  (RK)

"Peak Twins are Joel Carey and Liam Kenny. Their engineer and producer is Jack Farley and their regular backing group is Chad McLachlan, James Mannix and Ben Quici. Their song writing is informed by the voices of Julee Cruise, Mick Jagger and Roy Orbison.

Steppin’ Off is the first single from Peak Twins’ upcoming debut LP on BSR. This is the beginning." - Bedroom Suck Records
