2021 saw her influence only further manifest. Peaches’ domination over pop culture cannot be understated, with her music “shifting the window for sex in pop” (NPR). Her aesthetic provided the main influence for designer Anthony Vaccarello’s AW21 Saint Laurent collection and “Fuck The Pain Away” was used as a climactic moment in Netflix’s Sex Education Season 3. The song was also written into the script for Aisling Bea’s comedy series This Way Up, and the clinquant “Kick It” acted as a supporting character in the soundtrack for Showtime’s critically-acclaimed Yellowjackets.
An iconic feminist musician, producer, director, and performance artist, Peaches has spent more than two decades pushing boundaries and breaking barriers, dramatically altering the landscape of popular culture as she forged a bold, sexually progressive path that’s opened the doors for countless others to follow. Through music, art, film, theater, television, and books, she has upended stereotypes and embraced taboos, challenging social norms and patriarchal power structures while championing LGBTQ+ rights and issues of gender and sexual identity with biting wit and fearless originality.
