Peach Pyramid is the sonic exhale of Jen Severtson, Adrian Heim and Rowan Mackenzie.
Weaving shimmering guitars into Severtson’s blooming vocals, the group delivers lush palettes, punctuated by a warm and familiar rhythm section of bass and drums. Based in the rising art capital of Victoria, British Columbia, the group integrates the city's foundation of indie rock into Jen's narrative and earnest lyricism drawn from her roots in prairie-based Calgary, Alberta.
Peach Pyramid’s sophomore release, Bright Blue, showcases effervescent pop gems that are anchored by narratives of love and self-doubt. Blushing vocal harmonies are backed by a rich foundation of guitars and colourful rhythms leading through the seasons of sparkling spring into a late summer haze. Re-joined by producers Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Destroyer) and Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Frontperson, Immaculate Machine) the EP stays true to its honest Canadian influences, including Feist and Bahamas.
Bright Blue will be released on Oscar St. Records on Sept. 20th, 2019. Bright Blue follows Peach Pyramid’s critically acclaimed debut album Repeating Myself.
“Severtson’s voice is flawless when skipping between pitches on tracks like “We Glide/She Sighs” and manages to slip between dreamily ethereal and aggressively powerful on album standout “My Collapse”. Add to that a selection of pop hooks that Feist would give her right arm for, and you’ve got a record that’s designed to calm and enthrall as much as reveal Severtson’s deepest thoughts.”
