Bio: Peachy Jane formed in 2006. The band have an elcectic range of styles and influences with reviewers mentioning Dave Byrne, Sioux and the Banshees and Neil Young and All About Eve but to be honest the bands style is really all their own.
“This song is one of their best yet, Beca's because her expressive style is original and certainly leaves its' mark. Vickys' voice is very different to many singers. She doesn't 'go with the crowd'... her voice is quite unique. At times there's a sort of emotional vunerability to her voice/singing which i really like. Brooding and pondering..? the bridge hangs onto that last chord as long as it can, almost to breaking point, and then the chorus kicks in, trying to burst the banks of...? frustration...sadness... anger and hurt...? expressing some of the emotional turmoil that is, the 'human condition'... The final verse ends with an observation...? no... a hard fact, of how precious life is, and how vunerable, we as people, can be.... This is a great song by Beca and Vicky, it's not 'slushy' or pretentious, but tells things as they are.”
