Forming in 2018, Peplo is a Glasgow based four-piece that cuts classic pop songcraft with an alternative edge. They've shared stages with the likes of Meursault; Jonnie Common; Hailey Beavis; and En Attendant Ana. The band's sound has been described as "lofi, dreamy, and lush" by The Unsigned Guide, while their music has drawn comparisons to "Dolly Mixture, Marine Girls, and C86" (Rats on the Run) as well as "The Cranberries or 10,000 Maniacs but with added complexity and muso appeal" (Storm the Palace).
‘Just to Get to You’ comes hot on the heels of Peplo's second single, ‘Katarina’s Got My Tongue’ - which was hailed as “the perfect dreamy summertime anthem” with “an utterly addictive chorus” (The Music Files). ‘Katarina’s Got My Tongue’ was shortlisted for Fresh On The Net’s Listening Post, where it was voted for by several listeners - including Tom Robinson, who subsequently played the track on his BBC Radio 6 Music show ‘BBC Introducing Mixtape’.
'Just to Get to You' is about the crazy pursuit that's demanded by a fledgling relationship - and everything that comes with that: the mixed messages, the misinterpreted intentions, and the desperate gestures. It was inspired by - and written for - someone who despised country music...hence the folksy inflections! The song was principally written by our guitarist Iain O'Donnell. It is the band’s most ambitious recording project to date, teasing the dynamic arrangements of Peplo's forthcoming EP - due to be released in the final quarter of 2020.
