about

HAVING SPENT DECADES IN GROUPS SPANNING GENRES, BROOKLYN QUINTET LA PECHE HAVE ASSEMBLED TO BECOME YOUR NEW FAVORITE BAND WITH THEIR UPCOMING EP BRIGHT AND BENDING. THEIR FIRST PROJECT IN A FEW YEARS, THE FOLKGAZERS ARE READY FOR THEIR RE-INTRODUCTION WITH A LITTLE MORE WISDOM UP THEIR SLEEVES. WITH INFECTIOUS AND GRITTY GUITAR RIFFS AND THE SILKY SMOOTH YET HAUNTING VOCALS OF FRONTWOMAN KRISTA HOLLY, BRIGHT AND BENDING IS THE PERFECT SOUNDTRACK TO STAY WARM WITH AS WINTER APPROACHES IN THE CITY.

WITH A HINT OF 90S GRIT AND DRIVING BEATS, LA PECHE STRETCH THEIR LEGS ON BRIGHT AND BENDING WITH IMPOSSIBLY CATCHY LICKS AND INTRIGUING TONES. FROM THE PHASED-OUT FIRST NOTES OF “BE GENTLE,” TO THE ROCKING “DOESN’T MATTER,” WHICH IS AT ITS CORE THE SWEETEST LOVE SONG, IT IS CLEAR THAT THE GROUP ARE MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE INDIE BAND. THEN THERE’S “RED TAMBOURINE,” TELLING THE TALE OF BROTHER AND SISTER GROWING UP AND GROWING APART.

AFTER A BRIEF SPELL AWAY FROM MUSIC, KRISTA HOLLY PICKED UP WRITING AGAIN DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM BOTH PAST AND PRESENT. WITH HER HUSBAND, AND BASSIST, DAVE DIEM, SHE BEGAN REWORKING OLD SONGS AND BEFORE LONG, WAS COMPOSING NEW TUNES. SOON, THERE WAS A DESIRE TO PERFORM AND SHARE SOME MUSIC. THE TWO ENLISTED THE TALENTS OF A FEW GOOD FRIENDS AND MUSICIANS. STOKED, LA PÊCHE NOW INCLUDES THE INTRICATE AND THOUGHTFUL GUITAR SLAYING OF DREW DEMAIO, THE HAUNTING VOICE OF KEIKO ICHINOSE TO WEAVE WITH KRISTA’S PROVOCATIVE MELODIES, AND THE CREATIVE RHYTHMS OF JEFFERSON GENSTERBLUM.

Track Name: Be Gentle
the very steps so bright and bending
simple sparrow help me find
where i’ve been and where we did the planting
i sing and you dive

for the first time we begin (again)
for the first time we begin

there was no gold in our darkness
no night to soothe our wounds
our hearts as dark as the soil
swollen like balloons

a hole in me like a hollow tree
down right hidden were the vines
a ray seeping through a canopy
imparting hunger for incline

For the first time we begin (again)
For the first time we begin
Track Name: Red Tambourine
we left early from grade school
they drove us up the mountain so we could play in the leaves
I wore purple, you a jean coat
we were a lifeboat, just you and me

dad would play guitar, you would write all the words
I would dance and play my red tambourine

we would have races down Windell
we would like candles on christmas eve
bury your army men in the sand box
snails in a cardboard box, near the tv

dad would play guitar, you would write all the words
I would dance and play my red tambourine

we placed pennies on the railroad tracks
stronger kinship, brother i want you back

dad would play guitar, you would write all the words
I would dance and play my red tambourine
Track Name: Not By Sight
waiting for the sun to go down down down
for the day and the ache to hit the ground
there’s beauty in pain
an ugliness to grey
both travel together
crash a train into your face
like a kick to the gut
robs your breath leaving distaste

without consent without knowledge
half the time eating at my solace
momma you let me cry and sleep
with that strangling monkey
i was sure he would kill me
grab my neck and squeeze it tight
you removed, restored and taught me
walk by faith and not by sight
Track Name: Doesn't Matter
i intend to tend our ground
and let your arms grow around me
the tallest pine, the meekest dove
the driving heart, the mended glove

the days turn to years
the years break the bow
but it doesn’t matter anyhow

withstand the diamonds that cut our feet
the folds we’ll iron in our sleep
the gentle giant, the sharpened sword
the ocean map, the healing word

the days turn to years
the years break the bow
but it doesn’t matter anyhow
Track Name: Shaky Pants
the earth on which i travel
the salt that is my name
the throwing on my fists
a tenor’s sweet refrain

left handed compliments
keep me up at night
the light pressing against us
seems to keep no time

life will rattle your bones and shake your limbs
but you don’t have to shake alone

you wonder like you’re lost
as you hang the moon
spring chicken in a graveyard
dancing to a tune

life will rattle your bones and shake your limbs
but you don’t have to shake alone
