U.K. band Spoilers release new song “Peaches and cream”
Today, 26th of May, UK band Spoilers have released the song Peaches and Cream. The song is taken from their upcoming EP There or Thereabouts, which is coming out later this year.
“Living the dream – You can have everything in life you ever wanted and dreamed of… and it does make you happy most of the time.”, says the band the song is about. “People making their lives look like a fairy tale and insanely happy… and then when you run into them they’re actually having a really bad time.”
Inspired by anxiety and depression this high energy song kicks ass but tells an important message at the same time: Being stuck between living the dream and feeling out of place, between feeling great and being envious.
“It was something a bloke I used to drink with would say, he’d have a really
positive story always ending somehow on a downer.”, singer Dan Goatham (also known for being in SNUFF) “And he once said “well, it ain’t all peaches and cream.” So I stole it.”
The band has the following to say about the forthcoming EP:
The new EP was half written before lockdown and half written during. Having toured relentlessly promoting “Roundabouts” during 2018 and 2019 we didn’t spend a great deal of time writing so the plan was to release something new in 2020. We had a few songs finished and then “the event” happened and it pushed us back. We took time to write separately at home and send songs to each other digitally which we’d never done before, usually writing together in rehearsal studios.
Once we were finally allowed back in the same room we spent time adjusting the songs and making sure they’d sound great live as well as recorded. Once we were happy, and once we were legally allowed to, we booked the studio to record. A week before going into the studio another lockdown was announced and we had to postpone. This happened 3 times in total.
Between re-arranging recordings, re-writing songs, rehearsing and reassessing our life choices it took until 2022 to finally get the songs finished and the record mastered.
