Album Review: Peaches | Light in Places (single)

It has been six years since Peaches released any new music, although she continued to entertain with film and stage performances including her very own one-man musical Peaches Christ Superstar.

She is on the verge of releasing her sixth studio album Rub and first single off the album is already turning heads. The controversial electro sexpunk goddess has gone beyond her own limitations and soared deep with her latest sonic outpouring. She claims it’s her best yet.

Light In Places was released alongside its video clip, which features cabaret star Empress Stah performing on a hexagonal trapeze in her renowned Laser Ass Trapeze show. The track follows the classic Peaches engineering and vocals with a punch. The lyrics are clever and pointed and are a true reflection of Merrill Nisker’s (Peaches) stylistic writings with the chorus ending in ‘so much beauty comin’ out of my ass’.

It’s a clever track that opens with electronic synths and peels into subtle vocals before breaking into her classic pop punk poetry. It is perfect in all things peaches and is so intriguing it has you losing your mind and begging for more. Which is why this release has been so hastily followed up with second single and video Close Up, which features none other than Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth).

Peaches’ new album Rub is out 25 September and you can pre-order now with instant download of Light in Places
