Peking Duk
Peking Duk
Spark up an electro fuse with a twist of house, blend with a galvanizing slowed down beat, and Peking Duk is served. Catapulting onto the Australian music scene, the Canberra-bred duo of Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles has captivated fans across Australia and the world with their distinct flavour of indie electronica and electrifying live sets.

Peking Duk got off to a massive start in 2015. They had the honour of having two singles in the top five of Triple J's Hottest 100 (an amazing feat for their first entry into the countdown), completed a sold-out Peace, Love & Sweatiness regional tour of Australia, won a Rolling Stone Award for Best Video and now 'Take Me Over' featuring SAFIA has achieved double platinum sales. This is Peking Duk's second single to achieve multi-platinum sales, with the ARIA Award winning 'High' featuring Nicole Millar recently clocking over to triple platinum! With hardly a break in their hectic touring schedule, Adam and Reuben jetted off to the U.S. in February to begin their United States of Sweat Tour including performing at the esteemed Coachella festival in California, where they played to a packed Sahara stage on the opening day of the festival.

This year will see them play a bunch of overseas festivals including Lollapalooza in Chicago, Squamish in Canada, plus many more to be announced. Peking Duk also have the Australian festival circuit firmly in their grasp with appearances at Splendour in the Grass, Groovin The Moo, Field Day, Falls Festival, Big Day Out and Stereosonic, with their onstage antics attracting hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube fan videos. 'High' has recently been released worldwide via RCA and Peking Duk will be releasing another single in Australia on Vicious Bitch in the coming months. Stayed tuned for more Peking Duk flavour this year.

Mixing the sunny swoon of sixties pop with a dark swirl of Warholian garage rock, *repeat repeat create their own geography, dreaming up
songs rooted in the spirit of both coasts. Based in Nashville, TN — where frontman Jared Corder, then-drummer Andy Herrin, and
keys/singer Kristyn Corder kicked off the band's career with 2014's Bad Latitude — the band looks beyond the borders of their landlocked
hometown and, instead, mix California surf culture and New York street smarts into the same tracklist. They're a blend of bloom, doom, and
boom. They're Dick Dale's snot-nosed grandkids.
A self-described family business, *repeat repeat was founded by Jared Corder — a former punk-rock kid raised on the sounds of Bad
Religion and Black Flag. The goal was simple: to make edgy, guitar-driven music that nodded to the classic sounds of Jared's California
birthplace, complete with hazy harmonies and surf-inspired arrangements. The problem? The group needed a female harmony singer, and
nobody seemed to fit the bill. Things changed when the band's producer, Gregory Lattimer (Albert Hammond Jr.), suggested that Jared's
wife, Kristyn, sing with the band. The fit was natural. Kristyn had grown up in California, listening to '60s legends like the Mamas and the
Papas and The Everly Brothers. She quickly completed the band, sharing vocal duties with Jared and serving as the inspiration for much of
Bad Latitude — a debut album largely written by Jared during the couple's engagement, filled with songs about love, life, and the promise of
new partnerships — along the way.
*repeat repeat hit the road in support of Bad Latitude's release in the summer of 2014. They traveled from city to city, while Nashville's
top-ranked radio station, WRLT Lightning 100, supported the band with plenty of airplay back home. Most importantly, the bandmates saw
the country and gained new perspectives. When it came time to write a second record, those perspectives came into play, inspiring *repeat
repeat to write songs not only about themselves, but about the characters orbiting around them.
Floral Canyon (their sophomore release) stretches the band's musical envelope, adding depth, drive, and darkness to the sun-baked,
surf-tinged pop music that's always been their bedrock. Produced once again by Lattimer, the album tackles modern culture ("Plugged In"),
rocky relationships ("Mostly"), religious ideologies ("Speaker Destroyer"), and all points in between. Gluing everything together is the band's
melodic, musical attack: equal parts percussive thunder, trembling organ, synth pads, coed harmonies, and wide-ranging guitar parts.
The album's name is a sly salute to California's Laurel Canyon, whose rolling hills were home to some of America's best musicians during
the '60s and '70s. The SoCal salute came in handy when *repeat repeat caught the attention of notable Silverlake-based label Dangerbird
Records, who agreed to release Floral Canyon in the fall of 2017. It proved to be a busy year as the band saw the departure of Herrin, a tour
with Beach Slang, opening for Neon Trees, and a slew of major festival dates including Forecastle, Firefly and SXSW. *repeat repeat’s
sound is bold, bi-coastal beach pop, at once coolly current and proudly vintage. It's sugar-coated music with a raw, real, rocky center, and
unmistakably *repeat repeat. -Andrew Leahey
