Meet BLACK PEAKS, a new band from Brighton.
Upon his return from traversing the globe, guitarist, Joe Gosney formed the nucleus of the band with drummer, Liam Kearley and bassist, Andrew Gosden. They set about writing music, instrumentally at first, with influences ranging from Mastodon to Oceansize. When they heard that vocalist, Will Gardner, had left his previous band they suggested they jam. The rest has been recorded into history. There’s lots more to come.
It was the Closer To The Sun EP, released under the band’s original name of Shrine in mid-2014, which caught the attention of those with their ears to the ground. ‘Say You Will’, taken from the EP, received numerous plays on Radio 1 to an overwhelmingly positive public response. Daniel P Carter and Zane Lowe became firm fans. People began to talk.
And then came Glass Built Castles, which has already shown Black Peaks to be one of the most exciting new bands of 2015. The praise has been overwhelming.
Expect Black Peaks’ debut album later in 2015.
