'Power' is a statement of intent.

Banger




When they first burst onto the scene back in 2012, Peace bolstered an energy and excitement that practically screamed a good time. Ferociously fun, and above all, freewheeling, theirs was a spirit that promised listeners the world if they wanted it.

If it's true that a fine wine only gets better with time, then Peace are vodka shot. Intoxicating to an extreme, kicking just as strongly as the first time around, new single 'Power' is a statement of intent - and not just for the band, but for anyone who's listening.

All brash attitude and brazen refrains, the song is a call to arms that wears its heart on its sleeve with pride. Cutting straight to the point with its turbocharged chorus, there's no room left for doubt or aspersions. It's a lightning bolt of inspiration preserved in bristling energy, a sense of dynamism at its most reverberating. Scaling to stratospheric heights while still being ready to rock and rumble with the best of them, the confidence would almost be arrogant if it weren't so damn addictive.

This isn't the watermelon sword-slicing band of yesteryear (who needs a fruit-based gimmick when the hooks are this strong?). This is the sound of a group who know exactly what they're capable of creating, and they'll be damned if they let anything hold them back. In typical Peace fashion, 'Power' thrusts this energy into the world with an inescapable positivity crying out to be shared.

So place a strut in your stride, hold your head up high, and get ready to sing it loud and proud: with 'Power', Peace are showing that the world is indeed their oyster, and inviting all of us to join them on a path where nothing can stand in the way. Jessica Goodman

BENEE: "2020 has been a bloody shitter"

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.

Sundara Karma have fast become one of the most interesting, inventive band of their class. With a new EP, some all-star collaboration and an outlook that constantly moves forward, the journey to album three is afoot.
