PREMIERE: Peach Pit – “Did I Make You Cry on Christmas Day?”

VANCOUVER – We all know what Christmas songs are typically about but rising Vancouver outfit Peach Pit have a take on caroling that’s a little different. With their cover of “Did I Make You Cry on Christmas Day? (Well, You Deserved It),” originally by Sufjan Stevens, they really drive home themes of loneliness and domestic instability. The track is a commentary on a relationship riddled with unhappiness, and the amplification of that unhappiness on days like Christmas, when we’re most conscious that we should be feeling cheerful and loved.

“We wanted to do a Christmas cover this year, but we kind of hate Christmas songs, so this one seemed like the best fit since it’s really just a sad song with the word Christmas in it,” says lead singer Neil Smith.

Peach Pit’s signature summery indie pop vibes blend well with the existential angst of Sufjan’s lyrics, combining to create a feeling that wholly encompasses winter – nostalgic and dreary, yet sentimental and cozy. Bonus: it’s catchy enough to join the repertoire of Christmas songs that play through the speakers of each and every public establishment for the entirety of December.

“We’ve been fans of Sufjan Stevens’ music for a while now,” says Smith. “Recently, since we’ve been all over the east coast of the States, we’ve been putting him on in the van lots. You can’t drive through Illinois or Chicago without chucking some Sufjan on.”

Peach Pit perform on Dec. 16 at the Russian Hall (Vancouver).
