Peak Physique's sound is built on a blending of slow, heavy-handed samples/beats, sparse/delicate vocals and guitar, and by channeling a bit of 1970's soul, schizophrenic modern pop, and sinful living. Coupled with the duo's high-energy, engaging live show, Peak Physique has been on a meteoric rise while touring nationally to support their EP, 2016's I Belong To You, and new 2017 full-length album, A COUPLE, both out on Gezellig Records.
Most recently, Peak Physique appeared on the ACLU benefit compilation Is There Another Language?, which was covered by Spin, Pitchfork, Consequence Of Sound, Stereogum, etc. The duo have been booked as feature performers at multiple festivals, including the 2017 Rhythm-n-Blooms Festival and inaugural Turnbuckle Festival.
"I swear that their electro-synth-rock sound fills whatever space they’re playing, no matter the size. When I saw them perform, the world just dissolved and was replaced with immediacy. What mattered was the then and there. It’s not just good local music: It’s good music period. It’ll be sheer bliss seeing them perform again."
- Will Oaks, WUTK
"Is anybody having more fun making music and performing right now than Peak Physique? These are two of the most creative songwriters in town coming together for something that is completely unique. Poppy, weird, sensual, and at times NSFW, their set was engaging and an all-around good time."
- Knoxville Music Warehouse
