@Peace - Collector’s Edition of Girl Songs, Shows

MEDIA RELEASE: Monday 4 March 2013

@Peace Release Collector’s Edition of Girl Songs, Announce Shows


Following on from the digital release of their #1 EP Girl Songs, @Peace are set to release a physical collector’s edition of the album and are celebrating with release shows at Nectar bar in Auckland on March 22 and at Bodega in Wellington on March 29.

@Peace will be joined onstage at the Auckland show with special guests from the Young Gifted & Broke family, while their Wellington show will also feature Julian Dyne & Tyra Hammond as well as support from Name UL, Raizsa Biza, Dam G and Broken Windows Theory.

Girl Songs shot straight to the top of the charts on both iTunes and Bandcamp following on from its Valentine’s Day release last month.

The release of a physical edition comes as a result of demand from fans, and will be available for a limited time only.

Girl Songs is a 10 track conceptual EP about a failed relationship and features both Tom Scott and Lui Tuiasau on vocals.

@Peace won over the bloggers with the release of their self-titled debut in 2011, which featured a musical soundscape laid down by Christoph El Truento (Wonderful Noise), Hayden ‘Dandruff’ Dicky and Brandon Haru.

Since 2011, @Peace have been working on their first major release, a conceptual album about space, finality, quantum physics and other things that you probably can't dance to.

Girl Songs is the preview to this craft - veering slightly off the boutique rap track that he normally takes, Tom Scott reveals that listening back to ‘Girl Songs’ is like “listening to my subconscious shout at me from under a pile of suppressed denial”.

Don’t miss your opportunity to own your own little piece of NZ rap history. The limited edition release will be available as part of the ticket price for the release shows or from all good music retailers from 22 March. Tickets available now from undertheradar.co.nz.
