The synth-pop, indie rock star got on stage and played to the audience, inviting them to journey with him in his pain and happiness. His melodic voice, electronic beats, and acoustic sounds were enough to make fans go wild. The performance was nothing short of perfect.
Although their surf-pop makes them sound is as if they have been plucked straight from the beach, the Vancouver band, Peach Pit, has started to make impressions globally. The band consists of bassist Peter Wilton, guitarist Chris Vanderkooy, drummer Mikey Pascuzzi, and vocalist/guitarist Neil Smith. During SXSW, we lounged poolside with the guys talking about their new album, Being So Normal, guitar solos, and staying motivated.
