Mancunian 60’s boppers The Big Peach release their latest single, ‘Sad’.
Packed full of treble-heavy, jangly guitar the track comes with a distinct Soho-60’s tonic suit groove. The vocal hooks of the track convey the heart and soul of the track, perhaps relaying what The Beatles would sound like were they born on the other side of the shipping canal. The elegant piano stabs that fill the backdrop of the track accompany the rest of the melody wonderfully.
Speaking of the track, the band said, “We’ve decided to release, ‘Sad’ now because even though the title is sad, the song is very uplifting with a touching sentiment. I feel that the song is sort of a social commentary on modern relationships with materialism at their centre.
“’Sad’ came to me within minutes. The chords, riff, melody and lyrics all flew out and it felt like the first time I had written a properly polished song naturally. I think this song is relatable, it explores the impact of mental health on intimate relationships, capitalism and materialism as a false sense of happiness. I hope people will be able to relate to the lyrics and I hope the melody and music behind it will get people dancing as it’s upbeat. It’s a mirror song. You think it’s going to be sad and it reflects back to happiness in the feel of it.”
