Formed at Chester University digs in late 2014, the three-piece band Peaness write catchy, fuzzy, harmony driven indie-pop songs about love, friendship, frustrations, Brexit and food waste.
The trio have been playing live since summer 2015, and their fun chum-fuelled performances have been winning the hearts and minds of audiences up and down the country. Now they head to Brighton’s The Prince Albert on Thurs 30 Jan
They have secured nationwide and international shows with bands such as The Beths, Kero Kero Bonito, The Cribs, We Are Scientists, The Big Moon & Dream Wife, and performed at a collection of high profile festivals including Green Man, Benicassim, Truck, Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Kendal Calling and Indietracks.
Firm broadcasting favourites, Peaness have appeared live in session for BBC Radio 6 music’s Marc Riley show, are championed across the spectrum of the broadcaster’s radio stations, becoming sweethearts of local BBC Introducing stations BBC Radio Wales and Merseyside.
The band have also received support from Radio X with a live session with John Kennedy, as well as a multitude of press coverage from Kerrang! Magazine, Rolling Stone, Dork, Clash, Drowned in Sound and The Metro.
Peaness have strong roots in the DIY scene, self-releasing their first EP ‘No Fun’, and releasing their critically acclaimed EP ‘Are You Sure?’ with UK independent label royalty Alcopop!

With their debut album due early 2020, the band are cited as ones to watch for the year ahead.
