Peach Kelli Pop is often reduced to descriptors like "sugary" and "sweet." It's true that the LA four-piece—who take their name from the Redd Kross song—make music that's candylike in its addictiveness, but there's much more nuance to their video game-inspired, punk-hued power pop. Their third full-length, last year's Peach Kelli Pop III, includes a cover of the Sailor Moon theme song, and the album's opener "Princess Castle 1987" sounds like a frantic rush to get to the next level of Mario (in the music video they run around LA dressed as Princess Peach before giddily finding Magic Castle). But songs like "Heart Eyes" reveal frontwoman Allie Hanlon's lyrical mastery of the bittersweet, while "Big Man" bemoans self-important mansplainers. Last month Peach Kelli Pop released their brand-new 7-inch, Halloween Mask. The garage-pop title track is a game changer: Through fuzzed-out, electrifying riffs Hanlon sings about the unrealistic and damaging beauty standards women are expected to meet by donning their daily "Halloween masks."
