Celebrating debut album World Full Of Worry, indie pop band Peaness bring their deliciously tongue-in-cheek take on coping with life in your 20s to Newcastle’s Cobalt on Saturday 15th October.

Their first EP came out just over seven years ago, so their debut album has been long-awaited. Bolstered by a vast series of festival appearances this summer, which have included left-wing festivals, female-curated line-ups including BitchFest and a tour with our very own Maximo Park, their forthcoming slot at Cobalt will go down nicely.

Tracks from World Full Of Worry are upbeat despite the often angst-ridden subject matter, celebrating the band’s own blend of indie, pop, rock and feminist post-punk. The likes of recent single How I’m Feeling uses cheeky lyrics to create a dancier track amid prominent harmonies. The band say of the song: “In an unfulfilling job? Need a shake up with something in your life or you’ll go mad? Well, that’s How I’m Feeling and it can’t be ignored anymore! Amongst self loathing and melancholy there are sparks of determination and a belief that you deserve more. I hope it works out.”

This versatile band takes pride in their ability to create music that is honest, powerful and ultimately, a positively fun listen.

Peaness play Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Saturday 15th October.
