"Set It Off" is a song written and recorded by Peaches. The song was released as the lead promo single from her debut album The Teaches of Peaches. The single peaked at #36 in the UK and was chosen by NME as their single of the week.
Jim Wirth of NME said, "Filthy, trashy and not entirely unlike Gary Numan after a sex change operation, Peaches is a winner all the way." Similarly, Mark Desrosiers of PopMatters described the song as "infectious and mnemonic."
"Set It Off" became Peaches' first single to chart on the UK Singles Chart. It is her highest charting single to date on the chart. It debuted at #36 and spent a total of 12 weeks in the Top 200 singles.
Two versions of the video exist. The first one was shot in Super 8 format and consists of three different shots of Peaches united simulating her entire body. Peaches is seen dancing in the video.
Nisker signed to a European contract by Sony. Her second video was a big-budget video for the Tobi Neumman version of song "Set it Off," in which she danced in a locker room and restrooms as her pubic and armpit hair grew to Rapunzel proportions. Sony dropped her after the music video's release and demanded their money back. This was the first music video that Peaches made with professional directors.
