Getting her start playing drums with Canadian Garage Pop trio The White Wires, Allie Hanlon began Peach Kelli Pop as a solo outlet for her own songwriting. Peach Kelli Pop (Hanlon does all of the recording and friends join her on the road) is modeled after some of the classics of vintage Pop music.
A mix of ’50s Rock & Roll shimmy and Bubblegum head-bopping, Hanlon’s songs have a charm similar to Shonen Knife’s spin on classic Pop, except instead of emulating The Ramones, Hanlon’s endearing, infectious songs are presented as raw, lo-fi melody nuggets that would be right at home on a K Records 7-inch circa 1993.
Peach Kelli Pop has had music released by esteemed labels like Infinity Cat and Burger Records; on the current tour (a precursor to forthcoming road treks in Japan and Europe), fans can pick up a new single from Porchcore Records and a rarities cassette issued by Lollipop Records.
PEACH KELLI POP plays a free show Wednesday, March 19 at The Comet.
