The PepTides

"In the studio and on the stage, the nine-member band’s creations run the gamut from uproarious electro-synth pop anthems to tender acoustic ballads—giving a chipper nod to every genre in between. Incisive lyrics contrast with layered harmonies, catchy backbeats and whimsical sound effects in an exploration of the existential questions “What happened?”, “What’s wrong?” and “What next?”. Past albums include Revenge of the Vinyl Cafe (2013, a special original soundtrack to Stuart McLean’s book of the same title) and For Those Who Hate Human Interaction (2010, voted Best Album of the Year by the Ottawa Citizen). Their double-album Love Question Mark (2014) was heralded as “an ambitious collection of fun, daring, unadulterated, true blue art." - Exclaim! Magazine.
