Vancouver quartet Peach Pit have released their new single “Feelin’ Low (F*ckboy Blues).” Produced by John Congleton [Swans, St. Vincent, Best Coast] and written by Neil Smith, Chris Vanderkooy, Peter Wilton, and Mikey Pascuzzi, “Feelin’ Low” is the first song from Peach Pit since their debut album Being So Normal in 2017. The band has also shared the official video for the track, which was directed by their long-time collaborator Lester Lyons-Hookham.
Neil Smith on “Feelin’ Low (F*ckboy Blues):”
“We actually wrote ‘Feelin’ Low’ a number of years ago, and when listening back, it reminds me of last summer and how flakey I was being. The first line of the song is ‘I want something more or less than what I have,’ which is me trying to say how disconnected I can get. I’m constantly flip-flopping between wanting more connection with the people around me and pulling away to deprive myself of it, it’s a weird cycle I get into. Last year our friends threw a wrestling-themed surprise party for our bud Daniel’s birthday – I can’t remember exactly why, but I was feeling really down about something so I decided not to go. The video for ‘Feelin’ Low’ was inspired by that party and really conveys the experience of being surrounded by lots of people yet still feeling seemingly alone.”
Peach Pit will join Two Door Cinema Club on the west coast run of the Irish band’s headline tour. The shows kick off tonight in Seattle, WA and include performances at Oakland’s Fox Theater and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium before concluding in Houston, TX on November 14. Peach Pit will also perform at this year’s Tropicalia Festival.
