Black Peaches come from a musical point halfway between the swamp and the tropics. Their
music is a psychotropic stew of country boogie, spiritual jazz and funk.
With fuzz-toned slide guitars, Latin percussion and shimmering keyboards, Black Peaches
sound is a cinematic experience, the soundtrack to a bar fight at the country disco or an
incantation of the black arts.
Black Peaches are led by Rob Smoughton, probably best known as a long-time member of
Hot Chip and Scritti Politti, and whose alter-ego Grovesnor has released a number of
albums to critical acclaim. To form Black Peaches, Rob hand-picked a diverse group of
London’s finest musical collaborators in order to create a band that is much more than the
sum of its parts.
Black Peaches’ highly regarded musicians have also worked with Floating Points, Alexis
Taylor, Zongamin, Karl Blau, Karen Elson, Vanishing Twin, Cold Specks, Reverend John
Wilkins, The Severed Limb and many others.
