PEACH PIT was formed during the greaseball summer migration of 2014. A few thousand of Vancouver's sleaziest motored their parent's cars up the sea to sky highway to attend Pemberton Music Festival, including future band mates Christopher Vanderkooy and Neil Smith. Heavy amounts of heatstroke and substance abuse inspired flaky plans to meet up and play guitar together later that month. Neil's melancholy pop songs soon evolved after a few practices. Christopher's dreamy guitar tones, Peter Wilton's Lou Reed inspired bass chords and Mikey Passcuzzi's punchy beats helped to develop their chewed bubblegum sound. With lyrics rooted in high school heartbreak and self deprecation, the band's songs spin stories of backstabbing best friends and drug addicted tour guides. Having the dance moves of an epileptic headbanger and the body of a 14 year old girl, Neil brings a unique energy to their live shows while the rest of the band does their best to keep it weird.
