Dark brooding sultry vibes
Peacebone is a Swiss blues-rock band first created in 2016. Its original members are Julien Bonzon (bass guitar), Simon Bradford (drums) and Samuel Lucchini (lead guitar). Lead singer Rebekah Atkinson joined in 2019. With an attractive voice, she brings a groovy and colorful sound to the band’s compositions, creating a unique style. About a year later, the band brought in Adrien Signoret to play rhythm guitar.
In 2017, Peacebone became a member of the Association de la Ferme Menthée (AFM), an association from Vevey that supports local musicians. The association is made up of active members of an average age of 20 years old, well known in the French-speaking region of the rock and indie scene in Switzerland. Their goal is to widely share their passion for music by reaching people from all communities.
“The track was originally just a chord progression on piano written by Rebekah, our vocalist,” says drummer Simon Bradford. “She brought the idea to the band during a practice session. Samuel, our guitarist, had also written a punchy guitar riff that seemed like it would never fit with the chords, as it was very fast and in a weird time signature. We thought it would be interesting if we could bring the two very contrasting styles together.”
“After a few practice sessions and much trial and error, we had somewhat figured out how to transition smoothly between the chilled out verses and the intense chorus in a way that we were proud of. We also wanted to end the song with a punch, so Samuel and myself wrote some very “garage rock” sounding chords inspired by “Ty Segall” or “Meatbodies”. Then Rebekah brought her fantastic “Haitus Kaiyote” inspired vocals to the song. The lyrics talk about having commitment issues as well as getting attached and detached from people far too easily.”
