Reading four-piece peers_.jpgPeers are our latest tip of the week. 

The band came to our attention after they uploaded some tracks to us at the tail end of last year. Jenny Minard on their local show on BBC Berkshire quickly picked up on their youthful indie rock exuberance and invited them in for a chat.

More recently, they've been played by Tom Robinson on 6 Music and this weekend they'll be performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds. That's pretty good going, considering they've only been together since the start of the year and the oldest member of the band is just 17.

After selling out their very first show, they've supported Male Bonding, The Kabeedies and Tripwires. Here are some other interesting titbits supplied by the band themselves:

Matthew (guitar and vocals) is ginger, has a girlfriend from Venezuela, is friends with and lives in the same street as Rhys from Tripwires.

Elliot plays a headless bass, doesn't like rock music, listens to remixes and has 8 cats. We practice at his house.

We like the tunes of the Maccabees and Bombay Bicycle Club and the noise of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth.

So there you have it. If you're going to Reading or Leeds this weekend, make sure you check them out. We'll bring you video highlights and photos of their live set next week.

Over to Huw now, to introduce our tip of the week by Peers, titled Football:
