Legendary feminist icon, musician, producer, artist, and "peerless iconoclast" (Elle) Peaches has always been a political figure, with lyrics famous for their focus on social inequality, body image, gender, and age equality. She was called a ‘heroine’ by the New York Times and has spent the past two decades upending stereotypes and challenging social norms while championing issues of gender equality and sexual identity with biting wit and fearless originality. On her latest releases, she's more direct and defiant than ever.
In just the past 6 months she's taken on systemic oppression on "Flip This", celebrated the 48th anniversary of Roe v Wade with friends Cyndi Lauper, Nona Hendyrx, Linda Perry and more on Amanda Shires' "Our Problem" and last year her seminal album The Teaches of Peaches turned 20, in a retrospective NPR said it fundamentally "shifted the window for sex in pop." Now she is releasing "Pussy Mask" a scathing take on the mask-averse political choice during the pandemic.
Some other major culture moments for Peaches this past year include Dave Grohl's version of "Fuck The Pain Away" featuring Peaches, as well as projects with Nick Cave, Tenacious D and most recently creating Fill The Whole, an online gaming experience with award-winning directors and digital artists Pussykrew for the prestigious music and arts festival CTM in Berlin, play it here.
