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", after lead singer Neil Smith's love for the lazy life). 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 that have them sounding somewhere between Mac Demarco and Homeshake. 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.
Peach Pit's quirky online posts and campy Ned Flanders-esque uniforms have ignited a highly engaged fan base. They released their debut LP, Being So Normal, on the Vancouver based indie label Kingfisher Bluez on September 15, 2017 after which they hit the road, touring the U.S. and Canada including a Bumbershoot festival date, 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.
