Peculiar People is pleased to announce the February 12th, 2013 release of their highly anticipated new single Dance In The Rain. This marks their first release since their 2010 debut “Undisputed”. Dance In The Rain promises an intense ride through the storms of life where vocalist “MayDay” Hinds depicts the familiar dilemma of being caught in a vigorous storm and struggling with shying away. Ultimately he embraces the peculiar, and finds himself dancing in the rain with vocalists Deborah J, and Warchild who join in the fun during the chorus. The universal and uplifting writing is complimented by the dynamic alternate/Go-Go inspired beat, which in essence is the storm that precludes the ensuing dance party heard on the exclusive extended version. Dance In The Rain has already found it’s way into the hearts and ears of the band’s avid supporters and will soon turn pity partiers on their head across the nation.
Brandon “Chavo” LoSciavo lands the first note on electric guitar. Twins Stephon and Lamon Sandidge (Pound for Pound) round out the drums and percussion that drives the song from start to finish. Aaron Hope and Nick George bring the bold sounds on keys from drizzling strings to the thunder-like brass hits. Nick George also lends smooth harmony vocals throughout. Teaming up with Cynergy Music Group for production, Dance In The Rain was recorded by Nate Harris, and features Chris “BK” Harris on bass guitar. Dance In The Rain was self written and produced by Peculiar People.
The Washington, DC based band seeks to continue as proponents of change throughout their community and abroad with sounds that challenge the status quo. The followup single next to be released “Sick and Tired” will address cultural paradigms and call into question the things that our culture elevates as praiseworthy. Finally, the Dance In The Rain EP with exclusive extended versions and acoustic selections of the band’s most recent popular songs will make it’s landfall in late April 2013.
It was in 2010 that Peculiar People hosted a benefit release concert for Haiti which raised $5000 in partnership with Community of Hope AME and WPGC 95.5. Currently you can find members of Peculiar People in and around the community of metro DC serving in various forms. Frontman “MayDay” Hinds and “Warchild” were recently featured in the stage play “When Change Comes”, and singer DeborahJ has an upcoming performance at Bell Multicultural High. Several members play an intricate role in the rising non-profit “Will Wrap For Food” founded by DMV Artist Pro’ Verb which educates, empowers, and mobilizes the Hip Hop community to be agents of change in the global eradication of hunger through awareness, unity and the powerful influence of art. It’s going to be a busy year for the Peculiar crew. Plans for spring performances are forthcoming.
