Peach Pyramid is the brimming honesty and personal experience of one Jen Severtson. An internalized cry pulled to the surface; transformed and juxtaposed by way of graceful melodies and swirling guitars. Based in serene Victoria, British Columbia, the group explores the sounds of the pacific northwest while nodding at Jen’s upbringing in Calgary, Alberta. Repeating Myself, Peach Pyramid’s newest release, is a project recorded and produced with engineer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) and Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine) to be released Sept. 22nd on Calder’s newest label, Oscar St. Records. Repeating Myself explores themes of abuse and healing, glued together by Severtson’s ethereal vocals and pop hooks; Repeating Myself dives deep into the great beyond. Supported by a rotating collective of musicians/close friends, Peach Pyramid sonically exhales Jen’s intimate narrative.

“A three-minute pop gem propelled skyward by Severtson’s crystalline vocal performance.” – Stereogum

“Channelling UK Jangle Pop and adding in some BC sunshine.” – The Line Of Best Fit

“Juxtaposed with her heartfelt discussions of life and love are breezy, elegant melodies and reverb-soaked, swirling guitars, replete with hazy harmonies. 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.” – The Georgia Straight
