Peter Vogelaar – The Science Of Summer
Directed by Toby Stretch
Peter Vogelaar is a bassist and producer from Waterford, Ireland. His album ‘The Science Of Summer’ has been playlisted by Spotify UK, Nialler9 and The Irish Assoc. of Songwriters, Composers & Authors (IASCA) among others. It was album of the week on Dan Hegarty (2fm) and ‘Pleasure Evidence’ (feat. Ken Lally) was track of the week on ‘The Shift’ on WLR.fm.
His productions have been licensed to ‘The Affair’ (HBO), Awkward (MTV) and more recently ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ (ABC). ‘The Science Of Summer’ features collaborations with Deaf Joe, Katie Kim, Cat Dowling, Ken Lally, Susan O’Neill & Aisling Browne and has featured on Nialler9com, IndieShuffle.com, Takeashot.lv, Irishcentral.com, TheRevue.ca and Thelastmixedtape.com.
2017 saw him collaborate with DJ Madrid and work with Grammy award winning J. Ivy (for his appearance on Kanye West’s ‘Never Let Me Down’) and Gospel singer Avery R. Young. Currently working on album No.2 scheduled for 2019, he has recently completed remixes for Poi Dog Pondering frontman and Thievery Corporation Percussionist & Singer Frank Orrall and Wyvern Lingo.
“The real obstacle was trying to give the album a continuity with all these guest vocalists who had their own personality and flavour. I went back to a lot of the internal sounding albums that turned me onto music years ago by Nick Drake, Linda Perhacs, Sandy Denny and John Martyn – but at the same time I was soaking up a lot of producers whose sound had a particular awareness to it, producers like Gold Panda, Lapalux and Bonobo.”
Albums like ‘The Science Of Summer’ don’t come along that often; this is music that deserves to be celebrated.

Take Me With You’ is stirring … Mr Vogelaar’s production talents are unique and different than alot of hybrid pop-electronica that is out there today. If you dig his album like we do, you can purchase it on i-Tunes.
Peter Vogelaars new album is excellent..!
