Hailing from Canada's national capital, The PepTides is a nine-member band with a distinctive larger-than-life pop sound.
The five vocalists and four instrumentalists draw on eclectic influences, with elements of funk, soul, gospel, folk, Latin and new wave. In 2017, the band was featured on the cover of Ottawa Life Magazine as “Ottawa’s Best Band.”
A snapshot of Canadian diversity, The PepTides is an eclectic community of musicians with a rainbow of faces: girls and guys, LGBTQ and straight, English and French, black and white and in between, Ukrainian, Mexican, Guyanese, Cree, Acadian, Armenian and Scottish.
The group is noted for its extravagant live performances featuring thick vocal harmonies, theatrical choreography and colourful visuals. The PepTides’ songs juxtapose upbeat music with lyrics that comment on far-reaching themes like love, hate, money, sex, religion, war—and getting ready for dates.
The band’s 2019 release, Galápagos, Vol. I, is a salute to Kurt Vonnegut’s 1985 novel Galápagos. The ten-song album forms a soundtrack through the darkly hilarious story, which includes a global financial crisis, World War III, an ill-fated nature cruise, and a million years of evolution.
M3’s take on The PepTides says it all: “Mixing their stunning vocals with funk beats underneath a soulful sound, an abundance of theatrical dance moves and kitschy quirks, they defy any genre or description. One must simply see them to believe them.”
