The trio's new EP is out now...
Peakes

There's always been an innate sense of atmosphere within Peakes music.

The trio sculpt artfully electronic pop shapes, with their deep groove sound allied to lyricism that cuts a little deeper than most.

New EP 'Space' is out now, with the title track gaining a beautifully shot video that traces two teenagers around a Cumbrian town.

Director Fiona Jane Burgess explains: "When I think about 'space' I think about where I grew up in the Lake District. With this video I wanted to highlight the paradox of what can feel like a very claustrophobic lifestyle living in a small rural town compared with the expansive landscape surrounding you. I wanted to show how tiny and insignificant we are in comparison to the vast landscape of the Lake District."

"With this video I was interested in subverting the image of the macho adolescent teenager and instead show a supportive, vulnerable side to their characters. I wanted the dance to show an intimacy between two young men who could otherwise be perceived as aggressive or intimidating."

Tune in now.
