Peaer @ Meteor Oct 16th
$8 advanced / $10 Door / 9pm
As Peaer, Peter Katz, Thom Lombardi and Jeremy Kinney craft songs with attention to detail. Much has happened since the Brooklyn-via-Connecticut band initially debuted back in 2016: the songs that Katz wrote during his college days have taken on lives of their own, and the lineup of musicians playing them out has changed entirely. Somewhere in that timeline, between countless gigs, Peaer found a groove that worked for them and began work on their sophomore album, A Healthy Earth, which is finally out this Friday.
In many ways, A Healthy Earth feels like an arrival for the band. Peaer sound as raw as they did on their self-titled debut, but this time around, the intention feels more fleshed out. The anxieties are less personal and more global. It’s the first project Katz, Lombardi, and Kinney have built together from the ground up, and they’ve been working on it for the past two years. A sense of deliberation can be found tucked away in every onomatopoeic moments. Keen ears may pick up on a few “musical puns” throughout its run time — that’s “taking something that’s happening in the lyrics and trying to reflect it in the music,” Katz explains — but even as a casual listen, the album remains consistently inquisitive and engaging.
