Peach Tree Rascals have shared their new single “Fumari” It’s their funkiest work to date, advancing 70s funk-influenced accents and groovy bass lines. Clocking in at just two minutes, “Fumari” is a fun, brisk, and striking showcase for the group and thematically proffers accepting the peaks and valleys in life as they come.
“‘Fumari’ is about chasing after something more… whether it’s a feeling with a drug, a memory of the past, or a goal in the future. It’s about wanting to escape the current moment to a time or event that’s more exciting. We used to feel these feelings a lot back home in San Jose before we officially started making music. It was all about thinking back to happy times or looking ahead to drive our ambitions.” – Tarrek
“‘Fumari’ is also about the realization of what you were in need of has actually been there the whole time (family, friends, life, etc.).” – Issac
“People waste so much time chasing after the wrong things. I think in cases like that, eventually when you achieve or receive whatever you’re shooting for, it never seems to be enough. That’s why we believe so deeply in being grateful for the current moment and embracing the highs and lows, knowing that at some point, they both will end and it will just be part of this continuous cycle that is life.” – Joseph
“We’ve actually had this song done for over a year! It’s been a team favorite, so we’re excited to share it with the world. It’s one of the last songs we’re releasing that’s coming out of the shed in San Jose, so to speak.” – Dom
“Fumari” is accompanied by its wacky DIY music video showing Tarrek stealing Frankie’s (a cat) most prized possession, a limited edition lunchbox, and Issac going after him in a wild goose chase on the streets of Los Angeles.
“The video is about living in a dream, and the infinite possibilities of expression and adventure you can find in them,” says creative director Jorge Olazaba. “We hope to also show that at the end of the day, it’s just a dream and while it’s important to have them, it’s almost important to embrace the moment.”
