Peacock Affect started when I wrote a song called 'Wallflower’.
I remember sitting in my room writing the Stephen Chbosky influenced song and turning up to the recording studio and struggling to sing because I was a semi developed sixteen year old; my voice hadn’t matured properly, but we did enough singing takes to get it right. Little did I know that Peacock Affect would go on to be a much larger role in my life both emotionally and cooperatively with the place I recorded all of my songs. In a frenzied state I went on to finish my first self titled album, unintentionally laced with abstracted scatty rhythms, jazz chords and unusual song structures.
With time I developed different perspectives and emphasis on structure and production and I learnt to be my own producer; the results where ‘Blood Orange Mind’, an album full of experimentation, spacey atmospheric reverb and a deeper and darkened reflection of my own sadness and curiosity. I feel like I could have started all over again with a different name for these songs, but by the time I was finished with the album my Spotify following was at a size I didn’t want to throw away (I somehow received up to five million plays between 2015 – 2019). My name is George Holman, I’m twenty three, I’m English and live in the UK and thank you for listening.
