LA based Peach Tree Rascals make music that meets at the junction of alt-jazz, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. Their DIY approach of integrating multiple genres has given the group crossover appeal. The band have recently shared their new single “I’m Sorry” .
“I’m Sorry” exhibits the sonic and lyrical versatility of five friends. Filmed in the desert of southern California, the visuals display the beauty and escapism of the open road.
” I’m Sorry’ is about owning your mistakes and taking responsibility, but also accepting something bad happened and allowing yourself to move on.” – Dom Pizano
“We tried to frame this song as an apology to the people that feel like we’ve wronged them at any point, the moral of the story though is to own it, accept you’ve messed up, and move on. It doesn’t make sense to hold onto the negative.” – Joseph Barros
“The song also speaks to that feeling when you’re sorry for yourself, it’s sort of like a get up and move on. There’s no point in holding on to the bad, it brings you and all the people around you down!” – Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq
“This is one of our favorite tracks of this year’s rollout because it combines influences from all of our favorite genres.” – Issac Pech
“We filmed this a bit outside of LA. The concept came to be because we wanted to show sort of the idea that often times we run away from our problems, but at the end of the day, we’re all in it together mentality. We all have moments where we feel like the world is against us and that we’ve wronged those we love, but it’s important to take a beat and give yourself some slack. Apologize and own it.” – Jorge Olazaba
The five-piece band first met in high school, Issac, a solo rapper at the time, wanted to expand his horizons and started collaborating with Tarrek, Dom and Joseph. Jorge rounds out the group, taking the lead on photos and music videos that help amplify Peach Tree Rascals’ cross-genre appeal.
Many of the Rascals are second-generation Americans with parents who immigrated from Mexico, the Philippines, and Palestine. That immigrant mentality comes through in the way they approach the project and their work ethic. For the guys, Peach Tree Rascals is their extended family, which they started self-funded through various jobs including working at Red Lobster and their local print shop. Now signed to 10K/Homemade Projects, Peach Tree Rascals are primed to become a household name.
