Los Angeles electronic/alt project Peel have premiered the video for their new single "Catch & Release".
The song is taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, set to arrive on October 16 via Innovative Leisure, we have previously heard "Citizen X". Buy it here.
It started off as a drum beat inspired by Kraftwerk's "Trans Europe Express" alongside a delicate and lush guitar line inspired by Robin Guthrie. There’s a melancholy beauty captured in this song. The perspective of two lovers acknowledging the suffering of the world, trying to push forward, hand in hand, together.
“There’s an energy and transcendence in live performance that we’re trying to capture,” says Innis, “having the sound reverberate through the room, even if there’s bleed, embracing it and letting it color the take.” Cimino adds, “The lyrics were born out of dream logic. There’s a melancholy beauty captured.”
Peel is the musical partnership of Sean Cimino and Isom Innis (of Foster the People).
