On June 12, 2013, British indie rock band Peace performed their 2nd of a 2 night stint in New York at Mercury Lounge. The band’s sound has elements of The Maccabees and Vampire Weekend and some of their songs lean a little more on the dancey side, but make no mistake, Peace have a nice hard edge to their music. Peace is making a big splash overseas and the next time they come back to New York, they’ll be opening for Two Door Cinema Club, which will definitely find them gaining a more significant US fan base. They performed a 9 song set at Mercury Lounge and I really enjoyed the show. One of the highlights for me was a song (not on their debut album “In Love”) called “1998” which was a nice long rock/dance jam. It had few lyrics, but it showcased that Peace are great musicians and know how to rock as well as get funky.
They also played “Wraith,” and “Follow Baby” which have both been released as singles overseas and both songs are very catchy and rockin’. I definitely recommend that you check out their music and you can do so on their official website. After the jump, you can see the set list as well as photos of my encounter with the band. Thanks again Peace!
