#battlepeachr – London vs Paris!


Here at We Are Social, we’re passionate about music. Whether it’s arguing over the choice of background tunes in the office or debating about the joys of hard techno in our rather eclectic music Skype chat, we can’t get enough of it.

So, when our London office was invited by music website Peachr to go head to head against other international agencies as part of an annual digital playlist battle, it was a challenge we couldn’t refuse.

This is the third year that #battlepeachr has taken place, and this year, we’ve found ourselves up against the musical might of McCann Paris and McCann London, as well as a fourth contender – We Are Social’s Paris office!

The competition is already underway. Over the last two weeks each contender has put together an awe-inspiring and eclectic playlist under the theme of ‘discovery’ to wow people of all musical tastes, as well as the #battlepeachr judges, who consist of French and UK music journalists.

Our playlist is titled The Week that WAS, and we like to think it takes the listener on a musical journey through a typical week here at We Are Social in London: whisking you away from the Monday morning blues to a midweek slight spring in the step before finally celebrating the thundering arrival of another wonderful weekend.

A very special thanks to our contributors: Dan MoseleyEb Adeyeri, Essi Nurminen, Rob Hyde, George Terry, Jimmy Ness, Jake Lee and John Crozier, as well as Monica Presti for the killer artwork.

So, please stick on your headphones and settle yourself in for an audio treat. If you like what you hear, be sure to vote for us by clicking on the Facebook “Like” button that you’ll find right next to our playlist when you click through to listen.

Voting is open until Wednesday, and after that the judges will pick a winner from the two playlists with the most likes, so your support really counts. We’re confident we’re on to a winner, but we’ll find out when the results are announced on March 23rd. Enjoy!
