Black Peaches come from a musical point halfway between the swamp and the tropics.
Their music is a psychotropic stew of country boogie, spiritual jazz and funk. With fuzz-toned slide guitars, Latin percussion and shimmering keyboards, the Black Peaches sound is a cinematic experience; the soundtrack to a bar fight at the country disco, or an incantation of the black arts.
Black Peaches are led by Rob Smoughton, probably best known as a long-time member of Hot Chip and Scritti Politti, and whose alter-ego, Grovesnor, has released a number of albums to critical acclaim. To form Black Peaches, Rob hand-picked a diverse group of London’s finest musical collaborators in order to create a band that is much more than the sum of its parts. Black Peaches’ highly regarded musicians have also worked with Floating Points, Alexis Taylor, Zongamin, Karl Blau, Karen Elson, Vanishing Twin, Cold Specks, Reverend John Wilkins, The Severed Limb and many others.Line Up: Rob Smoughton – Guitar, Vocals Susumu Mukai – Bass Thomas Greene – Keyboards Nick Roberts – Drums
