Bruisey Peets - "Onions"


The latest swamp pop single from New Orleans' Bruiey Peets isn't quite what you'd expect to see on If It's Too Loud..., but that's kind of what makes it perfect. "Onions" has a very cabaret feel, mixed with jazz and some 1950's style torch song thrown in. There is something very classical and fancy sounding with the song, although the spirit is pure indie rock. Unlike a lot of music we bring you that we can describe as cabaret, "Onions" is breezy and fun instead of dark. It's a pleasantly fun song with a unwavering sense of optimism without being anywhere near saccharine. 

Ben Usie of Bruisey Peets says of the new song:

"'Onions' explores that emotional duality when fantasy meets reality. Crushes can be mutual, and yet there can still be realworld factors that limit the actuality of a shared love.  Savoring those boundaries is a trip in itself. I think we captured that feeling, and Lauren Hémard’s vocals really tie it all together."

You can listen to "Onions" below. Poached Eggs is due out November 19 on Y'allstar Records. You can pre-order a copy via the label's Bandcamp. For more on Bruisey Peets, check out the artist's Facebook.
