Released September 13th, ERASE spins a tale on losing touch with a significant other, something we can all relate to. With its sombre acoustic guitars, tasteful production, relaxed electric guitars lines and foot-tapping beat, Peter creates a rich texture for the almost haunting vocal performance to lie upon – but what shines the most is the stellar story, that intertwines with the visuals as Pete outlines “Erase is about someone who you used to share a connection with, and now they are slowly removing you from their life. This feeling of fear that you will be completely erased from their life.”
