Live Gallery: Peach PRC at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney 6.04.2023

Peach PRC

I am at the Enmore tonight to witness the ascent of two exceptional Australian artists. In 2023, tonight’s headliner, Peach PRC experienced a surge in popularity, captivating audiences and influencers alike with her debut EP, ‘Manic Dream Pixie.’ Achieving remarkable success, the EP not only amassed millions of streams but also debuted at the top position on the ARIA Albums Chart. The EP’s standout tracks, including ‘Kinda Famous,’ ‘F U Goodbye,’ and ‘Perfect For You,’ made notable impressions, with the former two securing positions on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2023 at #68 and #63, respectively.

I have seen Peach PRC perform twice before—once at the Metro Theatre and another her unforgettable show at Splendour in the Grass 2023. Tonight marks her second sold-out performance at the Enmore Theatre, a testament to her soaring popularity and undeniable talent. In the dim glow of the venue, a rosy hue bathes everything in sight. The audience are also cloaked in various shades of pink, each one a distinct note in this chromatic symphony. A lone figure catches my eye—a girl, calmly crocheting as she waits for the show to start. The stage stands as a testament to the adoration Peach’s fans hold for her. Strewn across its surface are hand-drawn portraits, plush toys, and letters, each a tangible expression of devotion.

Supporting Peach PRC tonight is Carla Wehbe, whose journey from the intimate setting of the Oxford Art Factory in 2022 (where I first saw her) to tonight’s grand stage showcases her remarkable development as an artist. She’s also just released a new single, ‘Sideshow.’

Wehbe recently supported The Chicks on their Australian tour. Possible highlight of her set is a fantastic cover of Chris Isaac’s ‘Wicked Game.’ Her supporting band tonight is made up of Charlie Collins and Kristen Adams of the Sydney femme punk band downgirl, Wehbe’s performance is a fierce whirlwind, sweeping the audience into a euphoric frenzy.

From the moment that Peach PRC appears on stage, the audience goes wild, singing along to every song. Chloe Dadd, a guitar goddess in her own right, shreds her guitar with a fervour that suggests her very existence hinges on each note. Despite her surging popularity Peach comes across as humble and taken aback by the fervour that her songs ignite in the crowd. She graciously accepts a rainbow flag from the audience and drapes it over her microphone stand, symbolizing the diversity and inclusivity that define the spirit of the night. It’s fitting that the rainbow flag takes center stage, mirroring the vibrant tapestry of individuals gathered in unity to celebrate their shared love for music and acceptance.
