Peach Kelli Pop, Retirement Party, Nectar
PEACH KELLI POP is a band from Los Angeles, CA by way of Ottawa, Canada and was founded by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Allie Hanlon. The band is known for playing Ramones-structured rock songs: Fast tempos, 4/4 drums, layered with loud guitars, and laden with immediate, infectious vocal melodies. Hanlon’s songwriting is unique in how it encompasses great emotional profundity and the use of the abstract and imagination.
Since Hanlon created Peach Kelli Pop in 2010, she has released 3 albums, a handful of 7’’s and tapes, and toured extensively (including annual trips to Japan). In that time, she also emigrated to Los Angeles where she met her bandmates: sisters Gina and Sophie Negrini (bass & guitar, respectively) and drummer Shelly Schimek.
"Hanlon’s voice: sweet yet detached like the fading flavor of a watermelon Jolly Rancher long crunched and swallowed" -Pitchfork.com
"Sounds like if chiptune foremother Manami Matsumae composed California surf-punk for a Nintendo soundtrack inspired by Shonen Knife playing a sock hop."
"Miminalist bubblegum/pre-Chysalis Blondie/Japanese cartoon pop/zero-grit sandpaper punk perfection! This White Wires side project (though this joy bop music is more of a mutiny than a side project by comparison to WW’s garage purity), PKP is more thrilling than PCP!"
"Like a lollipop caught in a lint filter, Peach Kelli Pop nestles sticky sweetness beneath layers of cottony fuzz" -WonderingSound.com
"PKP sounds like a thrice-dubbed Archies cassette stuck in fast-forward, or, perhaps, the Chipmunks fronting Nobunny." -FFWDWeekly.com
"PKP has the gleam and cheerfulness of boldly feminine ‘60s girl groups and is suited for any listener with a short attention span: She fits a good amount of melody into a relatively short amount of time" -ConsequenceofSound.net
"Best lo-fi punk popper going now! White Wires drummer, too! NICE!"
