“This is the second single off my full length album ‘Pesto Baby’,” emphasized Peter Campanelli. “It is an upbeat song about feeling yourself, not letting the male gaze get you down, and dancing through hard times. You’re not trying to steal the floor, you’re just trying to feel the music.”
Raised in Saint Paul, MN and residing in Seattle, multi-instrumentalist Peter (they/them) has been a prolific song-writer since their teenage years. With their previous two label releases (Subaquatic Records) being steeped in the traditions of prog/psych and funk, Peter was writing detailed long-form suites and producing it all by their lonesome whilst honing their skills using a plethora of different instruments and recording styles.
Containing ten songs that amount to a dreamy and congruous experience, all written and performed and produced by Pete, ‘Pesto Baby’ is a thoroughly danceable affair.
Stylized and talented as heck, Peter’s sensibilities in mixing classic 70’s pop rock into a more modern fair, delivers with beautiful production and revelry in ‘Ain’t no crook’.
Surprise, surprise, surprise – in the best of guidance.
