Hi! We’re peach tinted. Our names are Louis and Emil. We’re gonna make this more personal soon but for now, here’s our bio 🙂
We’re an Austrian indie duo formed in 2019. We began by releasing dreamy instrumental lofi hip-hop beats, independently recorded and produced in our basement studio in Vienna. The recent pandemic allowed us to take a leap and release our first indie EP titled “Cinematic Youth”, with Emil on the vocals and Louis on the guitar. The EP, a collection of 4 songs, blends layered shoegaze guitars with ‘80s-era dance beats and dreamy vocals to create feelings of nostalgia and euphoria. The track “The Unknown” gained sudden popularity after the video artist “I’m Cyborg but that’s ok” posted it on Youtube.
In May 2021, we released our second EP, the self-titled project “peach tinted”, consisting of four new songs “Not Alone”, “Roller Coaster”, “Dazed” and “Peach Tinted”. The EP represents our shift towards a more lush and minimalistic indie sound while sticking to our typical upbeat rhythms. Emil’s use of falsetto singing, multiple layers of dreamy guitars, extensive use of vintage effects, four-to-the-floor drum-machine patterns and nostalgic melodies are the pillars of our signature production style. While our previous EP centered around darker topics such as self-doubt, heartbreak and outsiderness, the new record is characterized by rather positive, enthusiastic themes. For instance, “Roller Coaster” describes the craving for change and breaking out of a routinized lifestyle. We wrote, recorded and produced all songs independently, either in our DIY studio or on the road in an RV.
We’re expecting to play our first shows in Summer 2022, sooo see you there! 😘
