Harry Koisser presents us with a robust anthem in the form of Peace’s single ‘Money’. Unsure of what to make of the news that the Worcester band’s frontman had turned his hand to rapping, I’m pleased to say he doesn’t disappoint.
The track has a simplistic groove to it, with a confident, undulating instrumental that’s perfectly woven with Koisser’s vocal work. Admittedly, it’s not as catchy as ‘Lovesick’ or ‘California Daze’from the band’s previous album ‘In Love’ but it’s brazenly assured and illustrates just how far they’ve come in the past eighteen months.
It feels like a song with a purpose: a social commentary about mankind’s pre-occupation with wealth ‘Do you need it? Do you eat it? When you’re hungry? Does it taste good?’ — ‘Money’ isn’t just another track on a Summer BBQ playlist. With the confidence it exudes, I’m definitely looking forward to the release of the band’s ‘World Pleasures’ LP later this year.10
