The PepTides return to Owen Sound!
Touring in support of their new self-titled EP, The PepTides EP, the band will be playing a two set night at the Heartwood Concert Hall.
The PepTides is a nine-member band with funk, jazz and electronic influences. The Ottawa Citizen has described them as “the B-52’s crossed with The Manhattan Transfer backed by Arcade Fire.” The group is noted for its extravagant live performances featuring thick vocal harmonies, theatrical choreography and colourful visuals. The PepTides’ songs juxtapose upbeat music with lyrics that comment on universal human themes including love, hate, revenge, sex, religion, war—and getting ready for dates.”
The PepTides EP - a collection of sizzling pop, funk and soul - is comprised of the band's favourite live songs with the aim of capturing their energetic, colourful live show on record. The first single, "Don't Believe in Love" is being played on radio stations across the country. Watch the video here.
