Already the highlight of my day, Planet Peacock allow the natural swagger and creativity of distorted, soulful rock to pour through in an immediately hypnotic manner on this single.
Creatively fusing the heavy hit of metal with the experimental nature of alternative EDM, Feed The Weird drives with a decidedly cinematic style on this album – one that feels immediately well-suited to the Mad Max or Dark Sci-Fi corners of entertainment.
