Tranquility is becoming harder to find, for Want of Peace.

Hailing from the illusory quiet of Canberra, Want of Peace now brings his soulful art-rock palette to the big smoke of Sydney, illustrating precious moments of intimacy in the sprawling city with his new release, Earthling+.

Earthling+ sometimes approaches the unexpected, exploring a space where muffled soundscapes can coexist with jagged, Hendrix-like guitar play; where delicate harmonies can clash with frank ruminations on love, losing yourself, then finding yourself again, bewildered, facing the end of the world with only half-a-bottle of Jack Daniels and half-a-clue of how you got there.

Want of Peace’s Earthling+ manages to make the familiar feel fresh, guiding the listener to heights unknown with a steady hand before letting go; an album that observes a moment of calm in the inevitable crash-landing.
