Review: Peace at 53 Degrees

Peace, one of the most hotly tipped bands in the country arrived at 53 Degrees on Thursday night and proceeded to show a lively audience what all the fuss has been about. The Midlands Indie foursome recently released debut album ‘In Love” which the band mockingly describe as ‘the best album we’ve ever made’. It got a good airing on the night and many of the tunes sound vaguely familiar – kind of Nirvana meets Oasis but in a good way.

This was a band on form and the songs came thick and fast with crowd favourite Wraith really rocking the place. In fact, as soon as it finished the calls to play it again grew to a roar and the band gave in to the public’s wishes, much to the delight of the younger elements of the audience in the Mosh Pit who writhed around and jumped with even more vigour second time around.


No doubt about it Peace have some good songs and with a little more material they will surely become a must-see live band. I’m looking forward to the day when I can say I was there when Peace played 53 Degrees in Preston.
