Peakes make loneliness feel like the most seductive experience in the world. True outsiders, the Leeds based three-piece construct vivid alt-pop hymns, while their precocious musicality matches ambient electronics – think Aphex Twin, Brian Eno – to surging melodics, and a divine sense of sound.
Vocalist Molly Puckering is a postwoman by day, making her solitary rounds in a city that was never intended to be home. She’s that lone voice up front, her searingly personal vocals channelling a rare degree of emotion amid those beautifully balanced electronics from her musical partners Maxwell Shirley and Pete Redshaw.
“We’re trying to make interesting sounds but in quite an accessible way,” explains Maxwell. “It’s a pop scenario. Electronic ambient sounds but in a pop context.”
Far out in the rolling Yorkshire landscape, Peakes are able to let their imaginations run unhindered. Even here, though, Molly still can't quite find peace, recording her vocals entirely alone, cut off from the rest of the world. "I like going into a completely dark room on my own and feeling quite isolated. For me, that always brings out the best performance."
The communication, the interplay between each member makes Peakes what it is, and what it can be. The three believe in one another – from those frosted vocals, the fluid electronics, and Pete's expertly controlled drumming – to become a self-contained pop unit divorced from the outside world.<br>
