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're now gearing up to release their debut LP, "Being So Normal", on the Vancouver based indie label Kingfisher Bluez on September 15th, 2017 after which they'll 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.
"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!
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The “bunch of musical friends” at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. They formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each other’s bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. The band will continue their extensive North American tour this fall, with most shows already sold out before they hit the road. Stay tuned for their forthcoming album release due out in 2019, produced by Wilco’s Pat Sansone.
When trying to nail down their genre, NPR says it best, describing their sound as “Southern whimsy and fuzzy, melodic rock.”
Men’s Journal says, “To date, country-tinged psychedelic outfit Sun Seeker has released a grand total of nine songs. Nonetheless, the group has fast won over critics with its woozy, tuneful pop, anchored by singer Alex Benick’s wistful vocals. After releasing Biddeford, a well-received EP on Jack White’s Third Man Records, in 2017, the Nashville troupe heads into the fall with a number of tour dates and, finally, a proper, debut full-length soon to follow."
