There aren’t too many bands around right now making music like Peak Futures do. A collective that’s based in London, although with members and roots in America also, but with a rich and earthy sound that harks back to golden days of soul and jazz, which is exactly what you’ll hear in their single ‘Broadway’.
Infused with summertime blues and the winds of change, ‘Broadway’ has a relatively light and feel good atmosphere. Yet as Joe Bernie’s electrifying voice conveys, there’s a palpable push-and-pull vibe suggesting that perhaps the good times are not to last.
As we learn from Peak Futures’ primary guitarist and founder Chris Hills, ‘Broadway’ is derived from his own personal experience.
“I lived in New York for 12 years – arriving there like so many others with hopes and dreams. When Joe [Bernie] wrote the lyrics over some progressions we had they resonated with me on so many levels. It’s about a character who comes to the city struggling to make a new life, but who is still tied to their past. Like the generations of musicians that went before me, living in New York had an influence on my musical sensibility that’s hard to overstate.”
