Peaches and Cream

Peaches, the electronic project of Canadian singer and producer Merrill Nisker, is a high-octane mixture of punk, rap and electro, which became somewhat popular in the second half of the 1990s as electroclash. Mixing the raw vitality of all these genres with a penchant for feminist issues in her lyrics and on stage theatricality-albeit with a strong helping of humor by reappropriating sexual stereotypes and imagery more often laid claim to by the male half of the music business-Peaches became something of a figurehead for the genre.

Nisker, a former elementary school music and drama teacher, developed the Peaches persona when moving from Toronto to the more permissive Berlin, combining elements of everything from glam rock to hip hop, while retaining her unique feminist outlook on sexual freedom and gender issues as well as a zero tolerance policy on any kind of discrimination. Her latest album, I Feel Cream, is both a continuation and re-exploration of her main themes, and a piercing battle cry for technologically-savvy feminism in the new millennium.

Peaches has collaborated with artists such as Iggy Pop, Beth Ditto, Pink and Joan Jett. In line with her ideas on empowerment, she also writes, performs and produces most of her own work.
