Lucy Peach - Be So Good
Info: From Fremantle, Australia, comes pop chanteuse Lucy Peach who has just released her new single, 'Be So Good'. Peach is currently touring Ireland and played in Whelans, Dublin last Thursday, followed by dates in Kilkenny and Dingle. Tonight she plays the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival before hitting the Clifden Arts Festival on the 23rd September in support of fellow Fremantlian, Mama Kin. Since the release of her debut E.P. in 2011, Wax and Wane, Lucy Peach has received unanimous praise for both her music and vocals, touring extensively in her home country and also her father's native New Zealand.
On first listen of 'Be So Good' I enjoyed it, it's a lyrically simple yet very nicely crafted pop song wrapped in a warm folk and roots tradition. Like all good pop songs, repeated listens increased this enjoyment exponentially, but maybe it's a bit too simplistic to describe it as solely pop. While the chorus undoubtedly fits the description, it primarily falls into the singer-songwriter mould, modern day artists such as First Aid Kit with a subtle Grizzly Bear (Veckatimest) infused musical backdrop on board, Peach's vocals are crystal clear and easy on the ear. It's also worth checking out her previous releases if you've enjoyed 'Be So Good', link below.
