The Peasants were an Alt-Pop group based in Nelson. The band gained acclaim and Kiwi music success as winners of the 2011 National Smokefreerockquest. Formerly known as the 2010 second place-getters Peasants of Eden, The Peasants offer a dynamic on stage performance displaying their youthful energy while performing a tight and mature sound true to their sense of musicality.
The Peasants' debut single "Letting Go" from their forthcoming album, released on 13 Feb 2012, was produced by Dryden Street’s Joel Little (Kids of 88, Junica, Goodnight Nurse) and was recorded at Auckland’s prestigious York Street studios.
They disbanded in 2014 after differing artistic directions caused clashes within the group. The members now all pursue other careers in music - the most successful of these are Caleb and Georgia Nott, now the sibling double act "Broods"
