Reliably informed

Peony’s new track Man Il Uomo is a two-headed monster that thrashes along with unabashed passion and energy. With galloping toms, and a hypnotically repetitious fragment of guitar underpinning the sung-though-a-megaphone vocals in the verse, the track has a reminiscence of Talking Heads’ repetitive angularity, albeit with a little more vitriol than David Byrne usually musters.

The B sections shrieks a sea change, with rippling fuzz guitar with a rainbow of overtones that are beautifully chaotic and half-time drums. The track ratchets up the energy throughout, mostly through the stunning vocals, which disintegrate, with the rest of the track, towards the end into glorious abandon in howls that call to mind Frank Black at his most bellicose.
