Today sees Master Peace release new single ‘Veronica’ - the second track taken from his highly anticipated new ‘Peace Of Mind’ EP.
You can stream ‘Veronica’ HERE and watch the Luis Hindman-directed video HERE.
The frenetic, colourful video launches following the single’s premiere as Clara Amfo’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1 last night. ‘Veronica’ represents a new experiment for Peace; after nailing down a riff inspired by boisterous festival crowds, he went into the recording booth with no lyrics prepared and just freestyled. The opening lines came quickly and it felt like he’d struck gold.
“Veronica is a youthful record that captures the feeling of young love and the exciting feeling that comes with new situations,” explains Peace, “It’s flirty fun with a-bit of tongue & cheek if you get what I mean...”
‘Veronica’ will feature on Master Peace’s newly announced ‘Peace Of Mind’ EP, released Friday 24th February via PMR Records, alongside previous single ‘Country Life’, which won ‘Best Music Video’ at The British Short Film Awards 2022 last month and has racked up 100k+ streams since release. You can pre-save ‘Peace Of Mind’ EP HERE.
‘Peace Of Mind’ is guaranteed to take the musician’s star to new heights. His boldest record so far, it presents a no-holds-barred dive into Peace’s personality, thoughts and the things that really matter to him. It is the clearest picture of who he is and what makes him tick that his craft has provided yet. “I feel like I’ve always been scared to really say what I want or what I really feel,” he explains. “Now I’m gonna say what I want, and everybody can take it how they want to take it.”
In support of his new Peace of Mind EP, Peace has announced a new headline tour set to take place in March including a headline show at London’s XOYO on Tuesday 21st March . Known for his raucous live shows, it is not to be missed. Full details can be found below with tickets on sale on Wednesday 11th January.
Ambitious in both scope and sound, Master Peace’s new material reflects this goal of making music that stands the test of time on its own merit, free from the hype machine or music industry machinations. Citing iconic indie artists such as Bloc Party and Arctic Monkeys as central to his musical development, he aspires to emulate his heroes’ impact and, with his impressive new EP on the horizon, Master Peace is set to take the brilliant and uncompromising next step in his peerless creative journey.
