If you remember Little Indie featuring a band from Toronto back in 2014 by the name of Mexican Slang, then you may just notice a similarity or two with new on the scene Peeling.
With several changes over the last year, two of Mexican Slang - including vital frontwoman Annabelle Lee (lead vocals/guitar), along with Dilly Dally bassist Jimmy Tony Rowlinson, Denholm Whale (Odonis Odonis drummer) Golden Dogs guitarist Alejandro Cairncross - have now re-emerged as Peeling.
The psych-punk quartet's debut single, the two-minute 'Leisure Life' - due to appear on Peeling's first EP 'Rats In Paradise', released on October 14 through Buzz Records - pitches reverbed guitars with a nervy bass line and crashing drums to create a sonic wall of rampaging appeal.
The band are on tour in North America through September and October:
25 - Toronto, ON @ Bovine Sex Club *
12 - Ottawa, ON @ House of Targ
