Since 2014 a fresh wind is blowing through the streets of the ever so calm city of Middelburg, the hometown of PEER. This fresh breeze of air is a mixture of energetic indie rock and catchy Britpop.
The four band members are young but far from fresh faced. Shortly after its foundation the band receives multiple awards and plays gigs at amongst others Concert At Sea. The release of debut EP Mad For It! (2017) for which the band teams up with producers Huub Reijnders and Peter Slager (BLØF) brings the band to national TV and radio (amongst others daily talk show DWDD and radio stations NPO Radio 2, NPO 3FM).
The single I Don’t Wanna is featured in the worldwide campaign for the Mercedes AMG starring British racing driver Lewis Hamilton.
Many shows including a full festival season and a show at the Cavern Club in Liverpool are next and to top it all off the band travels to India during the end of 2017, where an extremely excited audience welcomes them.
During the beginning of 2018 PEER makes waves once again with two singles, the energetic You Can Count On Me To Let You Down and the sunny Bird. With these songs the band shows its enormous growth since the release of Mad For It! with loads of variation and a strong sense of melody and sound.
The newest single Carousel tells the story about a boy and girl that can’t live with or without each other. On this song PEER opens up and shows its vulnerable side.
With Carousel PEER also announces its debut album, which is set for release early next year. The upcoming album and tour will make sure PEER will win even more hearts. Carousel is now available on all streaming- and downloadservices.
