'Peepers' is the fourth album by Sebastian Rochford's Polar Bear, and their first for the Leaf label. The album was inspired by classic soul as much as the influences of jazz, rock, folk and electronica that permeated previous albums and brought Polar Bear to a young and diverse audience. Polar Bear's second album, 'Held on the Tips of Fingers', was nominated for the 2005 mercury music prize nomination and was named as one of jazzwise magazine's 100 jazz albums that shook the world, and one of the Guardian's 1000 albums to before you die. Bandleader Rochford is one of the most respcted percussionists working in contemporary music, winning a BBC jazz awards rising star award in 2005.
