MUSICAL STYLE: Alternative Rock mixed up with 90s Electronic and Dirty Guitar Riffs
PERFECT FOR: For fans of K.Flay, YUNGBLUD, Yonaka, Royal & The Serpent
WHO: Lorenzo and Luca
WHERE FROM: We come from a small town near Turin called Vercelli
We started performing many years ago in two different projects, but we started PEAKS! in the summer of 2019.
Lorenzo played in a Punk and in a Garage Rock’n’roll band for years while Luca was in an Alt-Rock band.
STORY: PEAKS! speak about feelings of Hope, Rage, Dreams, Sex, Money, Mental Health, Past, Future, Life, and all that’s in between. Hailing from Turin via London, PEAKS! is a modern Alt Rock duo mixing, killer riffs, fuzzy guitars, and dizzy hooks – and they have only just begun. Luca Del Fiore and Lorenzo Mazzucchi are already working on more songs to be released, including their first EP release to follow soon.
Describe your band in one sentence
Lorenzo: The thing you do to stop overthinking, that creates a ton of new thoughts to think about.
Luca: the shyest of the extroverts, the un-punkest of the punks.
Who influenced your musical style ?
Nirvana, the 80s to 90s punk scene, Bring Me The Horizon, and Rage Against The Machine
Share with us an interesting anecdote behind any of your songs
The vocal chop in ‘Fired Up’ is actually Luca singing random notes when we were writing the song. We decided to keep those notes, use them as a vocal/synth melody by sampling, pitching, and adding tons of effects on them.
If all of you are to be described as an animal, what would they be?
Lorenzo: An octopus, or at least I try. Perseverance, mystery, resilience, these are just some meanings it represents, that’s why I have a giant one tattooed on my leg.
Luca: I think I’m an Opossum, I suck at everything.
Your favourite music venue in the UK:
Lorenzo: Royal Albert Hall
Luca: Brixton Academy
You are sent to Mars, no check in baggage and you can take one record- which one ?
Lorenzo: Green Day – ‘Dookie’
Luca: My Chemical Romance – ‘The Black Parade’
We are proudly Subculture inspired. How about you ?
Absolutely. Subcultures shaped us as human beings and musicians. The constant search of something that fits you and makes you feel unique and, at the same time, part of a community or a family. We come from a very small town, and we used to read books and watch shows coming from the UK or the US talking about all of these subcultures. We’ve always felt that deep, natural, connection between us and music/fashion subcultures. That’s why we started playing music, we wanted to be part of something and give people something to be part of.
