L.A. Peach, a london based quartet have released their second single from their new EP ‘Power Trip‘ a song described by lead singer John James Davies as being about “Creepy power hungry men”. A song with a strong nod to the 80’s both musically and aesthetically.
The song starts off bold with a synth line made for those who have clearly come to party. With a somewhat sultry vocal delivery reminiscent of Simon Le Bon, the band take us on a trip through a night in a bar, the lyrics are very tongue in cheek and provide a lot of dry humour. An instrumental section towards the end gives the opportunity for a very on brand sax solo. The lead guitar line on the final chorus helps solidify this as a stellar homage to an iconic time.
The band have managed to create a song that captures lots of campy fun whilst giving us a character we love to hate. A bit of nostalgia with a sprinkle of modern flair, you’re going to want this on at your next party.
