Peter Cerar

Lonely rocker Peter Cerar mines dark and difficult writing themes and matches the words with a high-energy, guitar-driven 1990s sound. The 2018 EP Happy Birthday roars like a mine-pit dump truck driven by Matthew Sweet hauling 300 tons of used Green Day CDs. A founding member of Mint Vintage, Cerar goes at it alone in this project, tackling highly personal lyrical themes like tragedy, loss and rediscovery. “I’m not afraid to make music that’s true to myself,” says Cerar, “even if that means others might not get it.”
