Album Review: Peace – Kindness Is the New Rock and Roll
Share This Article:
Following three massive singles in the run-up to the album, Kindness Is the New Rock and Roll is the Birmingham band’s most outspoken yet – putting their lovable message at the forefront of an increasingly political world. Whilst their last album, Happy People, exceeded their small indie band status, does the third installment after a three-year silence pick them up where they left off? I’d say so. Beginning with second pre-released single ‘Power’, one of their most confrontational, anthemic tracks to date, the album is set up with an initial blast of confidence; despite a significant part of the record focussing on the struggles of mental health. The title track declares a gospel-backed positivity, then by track five we are greeted by the passionate ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ – an incredibly revealing track with notable relatability in the lyric “I’m left alone with my big fuckin’ head”. ‘Magnificent’ showcases Harry Koisser’s duality perfectly: an ideal frontman with a heady mix of edge, fashion credibility, and undoubtable down-to-earthness. The track belts out “don’t give up on me just yet”, while the chords of ‘Angel’ follow in an anxious tone.
