Peach Pit have released a new song, ‘Vickie’.
The track is taken from their forthcoming album ‘From 2 to 3’, set for release on 4th March. It comes alongside an official video filmed by their longtime collaborator Lester Lyons-Hookham, reminiscent of the band’s visual for their breakthrough hit ‘Seventeen’.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Vickie’, lead-singer Neil Smith explains: “I was hanging out with my friend Vickie a few years back, and we got to talking about her birthday which was coming up. Without me asking, she said ‘all I want for my birthday is for someone to write a song about me’. Anyways, I got the hint. I’d actually already started writing something that began with the line ‘If you lived right down the street’ and decided to make a song about what life would be like if Vickie and I were neighbors. Now years later the song is on our new record and you get to see the journey from my place to Vickie’s in the music video.”
Peach Pit are set to hit the road for a run of shows which will kick off on 9th May in Dublin and includes stops in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol, Brighton, and Manchester, before concluding in London at o2 Forum Kentish Town on 19th May.
