Published Nov 01, 2019Now that Vancouver's Peach Pit are signed to Columbia, the group are delivering some new material. Today the band have released their new single "Feelin' Low (F*ckboy Blues)," which comes complete with a wrestling-themed video.
The song was produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Best Coast), and it marks their first new track since their 2017 debut album Being So Normal. As for its very wrestling-heavy video, it was directed by longtime Peach Pit collaborator Lester Lyons-Hookham.
In a statement, Peach Pit frontman Neil Smith said the following:
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.
