L.A. Peach - 'I Remember Where You Are'
L.A. PEACH waltzes through his musical life in dreamy languid contemplations on love. In his latest single ‘I Can Remember Where You Are’ all of the sanguine aspects are there, but things take on a slightly sinister tone.
There is something slightly sensual about the way John James Davies’ voice – which sounds like the gravelly aftermath of a night smoking too many cigarettes – describes waking up a lover. It’s the rest of the lyric which raises eyebrows and captures the charm of his writing skills. “Waking you up nice and early just to inspect your skin; thinking about the ways to flay you.” The Welsh-born musician has the laidback quick tongue of Kurt Vile, and his sound isn’t too dissimilar. The track feels like a summer sunset with electric and acoustic guitars flirting with one another over the swinging drum style. This is one of the most ambitious releases from L.A. PEACH and fits him into the summer soundtrack category of musicians.
