At the tender age of 19, Caleb Peters has already been making some serious waves in the indie electronic scene. After his cover of “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood went viral – he was lapped up by fans immediately. Going on to garner the attention from companies like Urban Outfitters, Peters has been joining forces with music industry mavericks like Lil B The Based God and Devualt, where he whips up an EDM remix to his song “Carousel”.
Adding more fuel to the fire, the young talent has just signed a piping-hot publishing deal with Neil Jacobson (the former president of Geffen Records) and his company Hallwood Media. With some high flyers in his corner, Peters’ new single “Hold” is just a taste of what’s to come.
“Hold” is a hyperpop dream. Peters’ digitized, syncopated vocals croon on about a girl, while a blown-out bass line propels the song forward. Glitchy, distorted, yet tender – synths pulse and patter from ear to ear. The perfect soundtrack to a daydream, if “Hold” is anything to go by – then Peters’ upcoming album is sure to fan the already blazing flames.
