Performing with a rotating lineup of musicians, Peaer is an object set in motion, staying in motion. Songwriter Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns) has an understanding of dynamics, amplitude, and melody as they interact as physical bodies, pushing, pulling, peaking and falling. Consequently, Peaer produces songs about communication as a force on a linguistic and kinetic level communication between individuals, between yourself and other self, between your heart and your brain.
Peter Katz (guitar, vocals), the mastermind behind Peaer, uses dynamics and space to shape the images around him, creating a sense of warmth in darkness, gaining as much emotional weight from his lyrics as his delicately layered compositional work.
Katz’s songs sound like David Bazan on a warpath or the desperate pleas of a man on his last breath. Songs like “Pink Spit” unleash a certain venom, but not in a nasty way—Peaer tastes good. [Dan Bogosian]
