William Cashion plays bass in the great Baltimore art-pop band Future Islands, and Bruce Willen used to play bass in the great Baltimore graphic design-addled punk band Double Dagger. The two of them have now joined forces to form Peals, a new duo that isn’t too heavy on bass and that doesn’t sound anything like either of their other bands. As Peals, Cashion and Willen make quietly sighing organic instrumental music. Their debut album Walking Field arrives in a couple of months. Below, check out the gorgeous early track “Blue Elvis” and the band’s forthcoming tour dates.
