While I was in Chicago for work last week, I saw British indie rockers Peace at one of my favorite venues, Schuba’s. I was introduced to the band last year with their brilliant summer ballad “California Daze" and they released their debut LP In Love in the UK this year to much hype and acclaim (though, no US release date is scheduled yet weirdly).
The show opened with an energetic set from Brooklyn surf rockers Team Spirit, before Peace blasted through a set that mixed dancey guitar rock a la Arctic Monkeys, Foals with Oasis / Blur-style 90’s Brit-rock revival. Both bands put on a great show and seem to be heading on to bigger things, so make sure to check them out if they stop by your town. Listen below:
