Peaer – “Don’t”

Peaer are returning next month with A Healthy Earth, the follow-up to their 2016 self-titled sophomore LP. After years of playing with a revolving crew of musicians, frontman Peter Katz has solidified the lineup into a trio including bassist Thom Lombardi and drummer Jeremy Kinney. They wrote and recorded the album together using the compositional concept of tone painting or “musical puns,” a technique in which a song’s literal meaning is reflected in its sound.

Today, Peaer are giving us our first taste of A Healthy Earth with lead single “Don’t.” It’s a prickly simmer of a song that erupts into fiery life as Katz sings, “Why do I even need to say this?/ You act like you’ve never been in public/ Why do you treat others like objects?/ Man, I’d hate to see how you treat objects.” Listen and check out the album’s full tracklist below.
