Canada’s queen of filth is back. After a six-year hiatus from releasing original material (2009’s well-received I Feel Cream), eccentric electropunk solo artist Peaches has returned with a new single. “Light in Places” is about as raunchy and sexually aggressive as we would expect; over glitchy electro blips and beats, she raps about being an “everlasting iconoclast” (she’s leading a sexual revolution) and about the “beauty coming out of her ass”. The accompanying, self-directed music video features a like-minded performance from aerial artist Emprass Stah, which involves trapezes and a laser butt plug (NSFW, obviously).
“Light in Places” will be included on Peaches forthcoming LP, Rub, which will feature guest appearances from her former backup singer, Feist, and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), and is due September 25 via Fontana North.
Canadian live dates include Vancouver on October 6 at the Commodore Ballroom, Toronto on October 20 at the Phoenix, and Montreal on October 21 at the Societe des Arts. Head to her website for more info.
