Today, June 27th marks the release of “HEAD FULL OF HOLES,” the latest single from the Los Angeles duo ill peach.
ill peach says of this new song: “HEAD FULL OF HOLES is about our obsession with nostalgia. This urge to have a tight grip on certain memories. Sometimes the beautiful and the painful ones get distorted because we want to remember them a certain way. We both had experiences like that in therapy this past year. It’s part of the healing journey to decipher between how much of the past is real and how much of it is how we embellished it in our minds. We started writing HFOF when we took our first trip to London. We were listening to a lot of Coldplay, My bloody Valentine and Radiohead there. Naturally. And we heard Radiohead talk about the infinite climax in a song so this is us trying that out.”

“HEAD FULL OF HOLES” follows the single release of “HEAVYWEIGHT” and “BLAH BLAH BLAH,” which Grimmy Goods describes as “erupting from the get-go, there’s a controlled chaos to ill peach.”
ill peach has just returned from a SOLD OUT run of North American dates with popstress Hayley Kiyoko. These dates follow opening performances with Christine and the Queens. The group is confirmed to perform at this year's Pitchfork Festival London show on Nov. 10—additional shows to be announced soon.

What people have said about ill peach:
"There truly is nothing in modern music that feels or sounds like ill peach, and their modern and dynamic appeal sticks out impressively in what is already an incredibly diverse and creative music scene." ["BLAH BLAH BLAH"] - CLOUT
"This new song marks a remarkable twist on ill peach's signature sound, moving into more upbeat, electric, and rooted in alternative rock terrain...There's nothing in modern music that looks or sounds like ill peach, making them a truly unique and dynamic act." ["BLAH BLAH BLAH"] - Oleada Indie
“Vocalist Jess Corazza’s delicate high end reflects their affinity for atmospheric dream pop melodies, but the undercurrent of chaos beneath it adds a layer of tension that feels cinematic. The resulting jam is a terrific slice of alt-pop with a melody that will creep into your head over and over.” [“DANDELION”] - Consequence
“...songs that draw on stately R&B, effervescent pop, and absorbing yet lo-fi production.” [“Excuse Me While We Find Our Minds”] - CLASH
“…together the artists shape-shift their love for idiosyncratic pop music through tranquil new single “DANDELION”. Transferring their complicated tale of love through an electro-funk charged sound and nostalgic sphere.” - The Line of Best Fit
a cacophony of experimental sounds met with ethereal vocals and lyrics [“Wildfire”] - Wonderland
“ill peach shattering the glossy facade of American quaintness with pummelling synths and hypnotic, Suicide-style drum machine. A rethinking of a classically patriotic symbol, it’s also a perfectly bombastic opening to sound the alarm (“American Pie”/sound the alarm] .” - The FADER
