Miss the The B-52s? Check Out THE PEPTIDES — New EP Reviewed Here

THE PEPTIDES are a smashing indie-pop band who bring their B-52’s style big-harmony sounds from Ottawa.

They have just released their self-titled EP.

Don’t Believe in Love” is a jazz-funk disco fantasy whose delicious grooviness comes from the deep ruts of bass, zizi synths and the most gorgeously boppy vocals you have heard since The Hues Corporation put on their yellow jumpsuits to bounce to the beat.

I’m in Love” with the “nos vemos tomorrow...” line is weirdly psychedelic.

If you loved the UK band Wham! and especially thought Young Guns and Club Tropicana were fab! then you should enjoy the funk-oriented synth riffs and general lushness of this number.

Love Live get High” was played by the band back in 2011 but makes it onto this 2016 EP.

It’s an odd [though charming] mix of skilfully deployed and overtly theatrical razzle-dazzle vocals and the jazzy boogie-woogie swing of the 1940’s. Think — The Andrews Sisters performing with 5th Dimension to get an idea of what we mean.

But, really — you need to get hold of this EP for your next party… Or even better, put your Boogie Shoes on and come dance with this band as they play the live scene around Ottawa, Ontario…

This EP is intoxicating, uber-talented and so much fun!

For lovers of KC and the Sunshine Band and Anastacia.
