In their new single "DEER," Peach Tree Rascals brings a little piece of paradise to wherever you are. Sonically, this song is the perfect blend of vibey bass lines, fun guitar riffs, and strong beats seamlessly packaged in PTR's signature production style. The easygoing melody will surely have you singing along by the second chorus. Lyrically, this song is an optimistic ode to self-pride.
Tarrek, one of the group's rapper-singers, says "Joe and I wrote this song about celebrating the happy moments that almost feel too good to be true. Sometimes something happens and you need to pinch yourself because it barely feels real. Whether it's love, reaching a career goal, etc.- that's what this is about." If you've recently graduated, gotten married, or even if you just got out of bed today, this song is the perfect reminder to be proud of your victories.
Peach Tree Rascals pulls inspiration from their first-generation immigrant upbringings in order to create their chill yet sunny sound. This post-genre group, comprised of producer/mixer Dominic “Dom” Pizano, rapper-singers Issac Pech, Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq, and Joseph Barros, and creative director Jorge Olazaba, has come a long way since their high school debut in San Jose, CA. In less than two years, PTR has accumulated over-four-million Spotify monthly listeners, over-thirty-million streams, and countless placements on prestigious playlists such as "New Music Friday" and "Pop Rising." However, the instant classic, "DEER", proves that this is just the beginning for these avant garde artists.
