RUB video on top 20 list for Prism Prize

Peaches’ new video for “Free Drink Ticket” explores the darker side of her 2015 LP ‘Rub.’ The video was choreographed by and features Ryan Heffington, who choreographed Sia’s “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” as well as recent videos for Arcade Fire and Florence + The Machine. Sara Sachs, who is the brain behind the state of the art fashion house Moonspoon Saloon, makes her directorial debut. She also designed all of the videos costumes. DAZED calls the video a “Gothic silent film-style piece of art” and says it “gives us a piece of Peaches we’ve never seen before.” Peaches is creating a music video for each of the 11 songs from ‘Rub’; this is the sixth video for the album. The video for RUB has been voted into the top 20 for the Prism Prize.

Peaches says of the song and video: “‘Free Drink Ticket’ is the darkest and most poetic song I have ever written. For the video, it was important to demonstrate that if you hold onto the bitterness that you feel from a monster who has hurt you, then you will become the monster that you are trying to shed. Sara Sachs and I drew from dramatic images from Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Le Testament d’Orphée.” 

Peaches’ song “Boys Wanna Be Her” from 2006′s ‘Impeach My Bush’ is the theme for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the first female-hosted late night talk show that premiered earlier this month. ‘Rub’ earned some of the electro-pop provocateur’s best reviews of her career with Pitchfork saying the album “arrives at a moment when the world needs Peaches most,” Elle calling her a “peerless iconoclast” and The FADER noting “her message isn’t one of confrontation, but self-love-and it feels vital.” Peaches appeared in season 2 of Amazon’s Transparent.

International tour dates and special SXSW appearances to be announced soon.
