Gullible old Nev was alas proven to be catastrophically wrong but perhaps not; maybe he was just 75 years too early. Indie melodists Peace are spreading goodwill across the airwaves with a clutch of stellar tunes that deserve a wider audience. Thankfully the wider audience is catching on quick and, following their majestic debut LP In Love...

As the greatest American writer of them all Walt Whitman once declared, “I am large, I contain multitudes”.
