The Peach Kings have a raw vibe and raucous stage presence. The curated sound is a nod to classic cult movies and directors like Lynch, Tarantino, and Andersen. Embodying something unmistakably vintage, their inspiration includes, but is not limited to, PJ Harvey, Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps, Lou Reed, Lee Hazelwood, and Portishead, adding their own undercurrent of sultry fuzz through every last note.

Within days of meeting back in 2010, The Peach Kings had a growing catalog of songs. A few months later, The Peach Kings, won the first place title as Alternative Apparel’s “2010 Unsigned Artist of the Year” after going head to head against four other contenders in a battle of the bands. It was clear that the song writing and on stage chemistry was strong.

Since the victory, the The Peach Kings self released a demo EP and a 6 track EP, establishing themselves as an authentic Los Angeles band with the perfect blend of grit and gloss, scoring major radio play and multiple “Today’s Top Tune” honors on LA stations and beyond. The band has played extensively in the Los Angeles area, with past residencies at The Bootleg Theater, The Satellite, and Harvard & Stone, as well as main headline support for the likes of Reggie Watts and Grouplove at local festivals like Make Music Pasadena in 2012 and 2013 and Sunset Strip Music Fest. In 2014, the band went to NYC for CMJ at which they sold out Arlene’s Grocery. They recently completed a headlining national tour with over 40 dates between December 2015 and February 2016.
