MASTER PEACE RELEASES BRAND NEW TRACK ‘OVERDRIVE’

LISTEN HERE // WATCH HERE


Master Peace kicks off 2021 with his melodious, anthemic new track, ‘Overdrive’. Listen here
 
A languid, guitar-driven song with a huge chorus, ‘Overdrive’ finds Peace looking back to his teenage days, the music he listened to back then for inspiration and capturing that vibe of youth and limitless potential.
 
“This song represents my younger years and what I used to listen to. It comes from a feeling of wanting to relive my youth again and perhaps do it in a different way”, Peace says.
 
The visual for ‘Overdrive’ is directed by Sahra Zadat and captures the different sides of Peace,  on the one hand it highlights his energy as a performer, and on the other it portrays him in more intimate moments, reflecting on the past. Watch here
 
The risk-taking artist, who blurs multiple genres together, was inspired to make music by his own childhood experiences with music. Peace enjoyed listening to grime and rap with his friends. Secretly however he was also loving bands like Bloc Party, No Doubt and The Arctic Monkeys on his headphones at home, absorbing the sounds of indie and alt-rock into his canon.
 
Last year saw the release of his debut EP ‘Love Bites’ accompanied with an effervescent video for the title track, which you can watch here. Peace says this project was to create communal moments and songs that leave a mark on pop culture. “I loved Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds – it just spoke to me when I was a kid. I wanted this record to make people feel the same way. These songs should just make you feel good.”
 
Peace has already won fans at radio with support from Annie Mac, Jack Saunders, Jamz Superova, BBC London, Apple Music with Zane Lowe and Elton John! He’s also had great support in press by DazedNMEClashDIY (+ Class of 2021), DORK (Hype List for 2021), TLOBFNotionHighsnobietyLondon In Stereo and many more. Don’t miss out on his recent livestreamed gig for DIY + The state51 that took place last month, available to watch here.
 
Peace emerged in 2018 with a sound more embedded in grime, making his name freestyling over A-Ha’s Take On Me and for putting out more combative sugar-trap songs such as “Please Don’t Touch Me” and “Buck Me”. His successful 2019 single “Night Time”, which won plaudits such as Skepta and JME (who appeared on the remix), marked a transition into much more of a romanticist pop poet with the release of “Love Bites” EP which sets the scene for the rising star to be seen as a fully-fledged genre shifting sensation. 

2021 is gearing to be an exciting year for Master Peace with more music coming as well as a live show at No Merci Weekender festival in Ibiza this October (Skepta headlining).
