“suckin’ on my titties like you wanted me, calling me all the time like blondie, check out my chrissie b hynde, it’s fine all of the time. like sex on the beach is. what else is in the teaches of peaches?”

profound lyrics they are not. songs-to-play-to-your-parents they are not. but fun, dirty tunes, yes. this is what peaches does. songs to strip to, songs to fuck to, songs to dance around in your underwear to cos you want to feel sexy.

hailing from toronto, via berlin, peaches is notorious for her “i don’t give a fuck” attitude (for a taster, visit here), funky electroclash tunes and outlandish lyrics, often concerning sexual and gender identity.

“if we’re going to use motherfucker,

why don’t we use fatherfucker?
I’m just trying to be even.”

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    Don’t get your hopes up. I love Peaches especially the songs you’ve chosen! I have an advance of “Impeach My Bush” and it’s really nothing to be excited about

    I’ve listen to Peaches latest album. It’s good. easily made into my top 20 album of the year.

    Radiohead had “Fuck the Pain Away” lead off one of their set change tapes for their recent tour. Funny watching half the crowd strike a “WTF!?” look when those first lyrics kicked in.
