Following the release of singles ‘Tapestry’ and ‘Orion’, the international six-piece collective Peak Futures shares third single ‘Broadway’. As the name suggests, the song is taken from the New York chapter of the band’s forthcoming album Colours of the Sun.
Founder Chris Hills says of the song:
“I lived in New York for 12 years – arriving there like so many others with hopes and dreams. When Joe [Bernie] wrote the lyrics over some progressions we had they resonated with me on so many levels. It’s about a character who comes to the city struggling to make a new life, but who is still tied to their past. Like the generations of musicians that went before me, living in New York had an influence on my musical sensibility that’s hard to overstate.”
Produced mainly in remote sessions during the pandemic, the band lean into their soul forebears on this track, relying on a stripped-back Muscle Shoals-esque rhythm section to support Joe Bernie and Eva Brooks’ lush vocal harmonies.
