TikTok sensation and Australian songstress Peach PRC is back with her liberating new track, God Is A Freak. The track arrives only weeks after the singers debut single Josh came in at #35 on triple j’s Hottest 100 Chart.
Heralded by the singers captivating vocals, Peach PRC takes us further into her hyper-pop world with God Is A Freak, built upon shimmering production and ear worm melodies. Having teased the song to her 1.8 million TikTok followers, the song takes aim at skewed beliefs and views present within religious communities, and questions the intentions behind God's actions.
“I’ve been doing this ‘god making —' TikTok video series for a while where I simplify the absurdities of “god’s creations” and how the intentions behind his actions make no sense, it’s something I’ve always questioned. I found it frustrating when I went to a Christian college and sat through testimonials about how the youth leader’s mum prayed for a certain type of carpet for her new house and God rewarded her with it, meanwhile there are children impoverished globally and “God” doesn’t seem to bother.” the singer shares.
She continues, “I also remember purity culture being a big thing. The first time I was ‘slut shamed’ was at 12-years-old inside a church during youth group for the clothes I was wearing. This song is for everyone who has felt shamed, dirty, impure, wrong, unloved and unworthy because of beliefs upheld by the church. Whether you are a believer in God or not, you are worthy of feeling liberation.”
Bursting onto TikTok in 2019, Peach PRC soon won over a legion of fans through content that provided viewers with funny relatable moments, self-care advice, her music and more. Last year, she shares her debut single Josh, followed up by a string of singles that have cemented her status as one of Australia's most exciting emerging pop stars.
