Peach Pit frontman Neil Smith had this to say about ‘Seventeen’ in a press release;
“‘Seventeen’ was one of the first songs I wrote for Peach Pit, I wrote it 4 years ago, and at the time i’d been thinking a lot about when I was in high school and the dumb things I’d done and when i’d treated people shitty. I think like most people I tend to hold onto that sorta stuff for way too long, anyway the song’s all about those times when I was being a dink.”
The Vancouver band first emerged in 2016 with their debut EP Sweet F.A. The four-piece, made up of high school friends, describes their sound as being “Chewed Bubble Gum Pop”.
After developing a loyal fanbase, the band went viral after their self-titled track ‘Peach Pit’ was shared on YouTube. They further developed their following thanks to their online posts and dressing like Simpsons character Ned Flanders.
Their debut album Being So Normal will drop in September 2017 on Kingfisher Bluez. Catch Peach Pit on the following dates;
