Albums of the Year - # 94 Peaness - Full of Worry



Among the big Indie hitters that landed albums yesterday, and there were a lot of really big hitters, including Arcade Fire, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Warpaint, that were on first listen slightly underwhelming to my ears, this one was slightly overlooked generally.

I'm talking about World Full of Worry the debut album from Chester female Indie trio Peaness. They're the kind of outfit that 6 Music evening DJ Marc Riley adores and his recommendation is generally enough for me. 

The record is fresh as you'd expect. Melodic and vaguely leftfield, with little ambition above delighting crowds naturally drawn to this kind of lightweight froth. Think Girl Ray. Think The Orielles.

Think back further to the likes of Dolly Mixtures, The Raincoats, Girls at Our Best. British independent music has quite noble traditions. Peaness will not change your world but they might make you smile and certainly seeing them live.
