Peeling (2017)

Toronto, ON

The casual way that Peeling flit between deadpan post-punk and fuzz-guitar eruption would embarrass a less on-their-toes band. There are moments on their sole release, the Rats in Paradise EP, where you can almost feel them hoping you’ll let your guard down. Don’t even think about it—with members of Dilly Dally and Odonis Odonis as well as the disarming presence of vocalist Annabelle Lee, you’re in for a bevy of roller coaster twists that plunder the underbelly of scuzzy rock and roll.
