Published Sep 20, 2016Peeling brings together some of Toronto's finest, featuring Dilly Dally's Jimmy Tony and Odonis Odonis's Denholm Whale, as well as Alejandro Cairncross and Annabelle Lee. They're set to deliver their debut EP, Rats in Paradise, next month and have prefaced its arrival with a new tune titled "Magic Eye."
The upcoming EP hears the band confronting themes of sexuality, death, consumerism, religion and mental illness, but despite the heavy topics, Lee insists that the aim is "to create catharsis and release."
"Magic Eye" blends slinky bass, fuzzy guitars and Lee's drawling growl together into a spiral of hypnotizing psych-punk. Hear it for yourself in the player below. Just scroll past the band's upcoming tour dates and hit play.
Rats in Paradise is out on October 14 via Buzz Records.
