The Peekers are a six-piece from Shreveport, Louisiana. Members include Brittney Maddox, Jordan West, John Martin, Michael Stephens, Aubre Bauer, and Aaron Butler. Their instruments are always shifting hands, their voices share all microphones. After a text message from Shai of the Capitol Years and a chance performance at SXSW, they have become the newest addition to the Park the Van family. Here’s an introduction to The Peekers…Read More...
Once upon a time there were four lovebirds (Michael, Aubre, Brittney, and John) who spent every day so high in a tree that no one could see them. They named themselves after a fictitious Japanese band, The Peekers, and happily wasted days together writing sweet, simple love songs on acoustic guitars, harmonizing their word-worlds into dreamscapes. This “Supercouplezoid” was the dear, psych/country/folk love child of four friends and nothing more. Things changed when mutual friend, Jordan, moved home from college with an electric bass in his hand, expecting to play with John and Michael's loud/abrasive and previously abandoned act, The Big Positive. Instead, he brought the electric low end flow to the Peekers with tones that laid the foundation for electric guitar and organ. Songs developed depth, but still lacked locomotion. Percussion major and majorly bearded buddy, Aaron, was the perfect fit for the family. They soon found themselves with greater and grander songs, thus, leading to the public birthing of the Peekers.
Since day number one the Peekers have been soulfully bonded. Unapologetically crossing the lines between love and logic and proving that boundaries are imaginary. Their style swings from the heartfelt and melodic to the cartoonishly cheerful and sinister. Blissful stage presence is simply reside of being friends who happen to play music together as well as the thrill of never knowing what may happen. The Peekers are lovers and dreamers, singers and players.
