Peals is a new band led by William Cashion (Future Islands) and Bruce Willen (Double Dagger), members of two of Baltimore’s most dynamic live bands. Formed in early 2012, the duo have turned inward for their debut on Thrill Jockey, “Walking Field”, crafting a meditative and exploratory headphone panorama of the highest order. From the first moment, they set aside the basses of their high-profile post-punk outfits for acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, tambourines, toy pianos, and other sonic tools in pursuit of a stripped-down, warm living-room atmosphere.
Peals came in for their microshow last month and it was the perfect place for them to perform. The audience was mesmerized by their amazing ambient hooks and melody. Enjoy the show!
