Indie rock band Peacock Method offer a bold exploration of sound in their new single ‘Love Is Blue’.
Emerging from the streets of Northern Manchester, Peacock Method are determined to make a name for themselves. Despite only making their musical debut less than a year ago, the recently formed band have just released their fourth single to date.
The dynamic track truly showcases the band’s diverse artistry, with lone guitar riffs contrasting with crashing symbols and heavy drumbeats. With so many different sounds, the track seems to lack cohesion at times, however all comes together in the undeniably catchy chorus, where lead singer Adam Kenny repeats the line ‘Down we go to indigo’ as textured production reaches its peak.
Although understated, the record’s symbolic lyricism is cleverly highlighted through subtle metaphors describing the all-consuming nature of love. The band explain ‘Love Is Blue began as a poem and it became a colourful ambient love song when brought to the whole band”.
While there is undoubtedly room for development as the newly formed 4-piece continue to grow as a band, the new single provides a promising start to the Mancunians’ career and is ultimately a testimony to their hard work over this past year.
To hear more from the alt-rockers, Peacock Method’s headline show is scheduled for March 17th at Manchester’s Peer Hat.
