LONG HAUL - SINGLE

PLAY LENGTH - 02:45

LOCATION - Sydney, Australia

RELEASE DATE - 1 November 2023 (via MGM)

Long Haul is definitely not based on a true story. It's definitely not about an ex and how good it felt ending the relationship. It is the latest single from all-female Sydney band PEPTALK. Marking the release of their debut EP ‘Dumb Teen Heartache’, Long Haul puts PEPTALK’s impeccable pop songwriting skills at the front and centre, whilst grooving production encourages catharsis (in a dancing kind of way).

BIOGRAPHY

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 debut EP 'Dumb Teen Heartache' releases on November 1.
