Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll
Yes! At last, a new album from the Birmingham four-piece after a long three-year wait. This is Peace’s third album and it’s as outspoken and bold as ever.
Of course, the 10 tracks on offer contain brilliant bass lines and guitar, as they always have, but there’s a certain extra pizazz to the Peace of 2018. The title track is a gospel-backed beauty that has epic ambitions. Indeed, this is the common thread that links the album. Right through to closing track ‘Choose Love’, Peace have a musical and moral message. The band’s name is a reflection of this. Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll reminds us of the necessity to enact change in our own worlds.
The new record is certainly a more emotive and softer album. The classic ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ shows the band at its vulnerable, euphoric best. It is personal, sombre and melancholic. This new facet to the band’s sound only magnifies and deepens their message.
Lead singer Harry Koisser encapsulates Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’s sound and drive. “Peace are going to make positivity 100% cool again,” he boldly claims.
Absolutely. Thank god Peace are back. They’re breathtakingly better than ever.
