Peach Pit was brought to life in 2016 with the release of their now coveted debut EP, “Sweet F.A” (F.A.
meaning “fuck all”). Originating in Vancouver, Canada, the group formed when high school pals, Smith and Chris Vanderkooy, decided to collaborate on a musical project. Peter Wilton and Mikey Pascuzzi joined them on bass and drums creating their "chewed bubblegum pop" sound.
The group melds teenage angst with bummer summer vibes. With their laid back sound and lush lead vocals, their songs tell stories of backstabbing best friends and dying end of summer romances.
The group quickly developed a dedicated local fan base through their energetic live shows. In February 2017, a YouTube channel sent their self-titled track, “Peach Pit” viral after discovering it on their Bandcamp. The group quickly started to amass an international following and booking requests to play worldwide.
They have now released their debut LP, “Being So Normal”, on the Vancouver based indie label Kingfisher Bluez after which they’ll hit the road, touring the U.S. and Canada with a European tour in early 2018.
Peach Pit has quickly become the next big indie act to watch out for in the Pacific Northwest.
"Peach Pit display a knack for distilling ennui, angst, and disappointment into wistful, melodic indie pop" ~The Georgia Straight
“A delectably smooth brand of indie pop complete with hushed vocals and Steely Dan-indebted guitar runs.” ~Exclaim!
