Have you ever had a near-debilitating crush? Been so infatuated that you’re in way too deep well before anything even begins? That’s what PEPTALK have bottled in their sparkling indie pop track 'urs'. Part of their debut EP which digs into their dumb teen heartache experiences, the bouncingly energetic track is self-aware and fully committed. Vocals stacked and swooning over the littlest details, Jay-Lee makes her mark taking lead in the second half.
PEPTALK are your wholesome friends giving unsolicited advice.
Boasting two thirds queer, two thirds POC and all female, PEPTALK is determined to be the positive representation they longed for growing up. Made up of Jay-Lee Kwan (keys), Lara Frew (bass), and Phoebe Sinclair (lead vocals), PEPTALK’s presence has a comfort and confidence that only time and genuine friendship can bring.
Each songwriters at their core, together they have written for artists and producers in the USA, Canada, Sweden, South Korea, France, New Zealand, UK and at home in Australia. Their recent collaboration with Aussie platinum-selling artist LDRU on his track ‘Alone Again’ landed on multiple editorial playlists and saw their online listenership triple. In 2022 the band of writers independently landed their first K-Pop songwriting cut with Rumble-G's “Every Other” which has collected over 613K views on YouTube alone. Together, Lara and Phoebe also produce PEPTALK under their moniker 'Middleman'. In 2023 Lara and Phoebe were hand-selected by Troye Sivan and Lucas Keller to participate in APRA AMCOS’ pride songwriting camp (Songhubs), in partnership with World Pride and Sydney Lesbian and Gay Mardi Gras.
Formed on a mutual adoration for songwriting, pop hooks and iconic women in the music industry, PEPTALK is influenced by the likes of Remi Wolf, MUNA and The Aces. Their previous releases have landed them on Spotify editorial playlists; New Music Friday, Pop n Fresh & Fresh Finds; Apple Music & Tidal Music playlists. Fresh from performances at the Brisbane 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Fan Festival, in their first 12 months alone PEPTALK have performed all over the Australian east coast. From Melbourne's Moomba Festival and St Kilda Festival; to Sydney's Fringe Festival, Parramatta Lanes, and Sofar Sounds Sydney; TedX Brisbane and supporting Cry Club and Vetta Borne on their respective headline tours. PEPTALK bring an infectious energy along with a fierce desire to befriend literally everyone.
Their highly anticipated single 'urs' releases on September 20.
