Peepholes are Katia Barrett and Nick Carlisle; a synth/drums duo defining their unique sound with both discipline and disorder. Barrett and Carlisle, originally from Bahrain and Northern Ireland respectively, met in Brighton in 2006 after bonding over a Chinese violin and the quietest of music. They quickly turned the volume up and hit on their winning strategy of soaring, stammering synth lines, primal drumming and low-slung vocals. Treading a tightrope between underground punk and dance music, Peepholes write cloaked anthems as likely to open celestial gates with keys of repetition as to soundtrack a Dark Age future. Their music is otherworldly, aching with wild beats, echoing with cavernous atmospheres. After a series of well-received mini-albums, EPs and some earth-shaking live performances, Peepholes present their debut album proper for Upset The Rhythm. The Overspill continues on from last record Caligula, with its rejection of traditional song form, allowing each track to follow its own fluid course, to hunt down its essential cadence. The initial material for the album was improvised and recorded over two days at London DIY hub Power Lunches. This was then followed by a lengthy six month edit whereby additional vocals, synth and percussion were introduced or reworked, pulling the album into a coherent and impressive whole.
