Review on Peach Pits new album: from 2 to 3

Review on Peach Pits new album: from 2 to 3

March 4th Peach Pit released a new highly anticipated album for their fans. From 2 to 3 has been in the works for a few months and even though some of the songs were released beforehand most came out with this album. From the first listen of the album, it has a very different feel than previous albums and the songs seem to run a bit different from ones the band has made in the past.
The first is Up Grandville, it was released a few months ago and the entrance with the guitar is a perfect entrance to the entire album. With this song, you can already tell how different this album really is from the rest of their work. The song is soft and upbeat. A part of it feels like a love song, from the way the beat goes to how it feels like they’re talking with someone else and what makes them happy. This song isn’t the best one on the album. In fact, I would only give the song a 7/10. It’s just never been my favorite song by the band but is a really great listen still.
Second, on the album is Vickie. Vickie was a quick favorite. From how it starts up, to how it feels like it’s directed to someone specific. The guitar is beautiful in this song, feeling like it’s marching along happily. Singing about how if someone lived down the street they could always be together and how they’re happy together. It’s a very upbeat and familiar song with a nice funky beat of sorts in the background. The vocals and the interesting tune pair together perfectly. Overall this song gets a 10/10 for me. From the first listen it was just perfect.
Lips Like Yours is the third song on the album. This song has an interesting intro, for once vocals begin right away. It’s a jump from Vickie and doesn’t pair well in the switching over part. It fixes this with the background music, however, being very soft and yet shining through. The vocals sort of sound like someone making up a song on the spot just from how they’re being sung, however, it fits into the beat. This song also feels like it’s speaking to someone that the singer is in love with or was in love with. This song receives a 9/10, just because there are a few points where the instruments and vocals don’t match up the best.
Up next is Pepsi on the House. It starts with drums and guitar kicking up into an interesting beat. The voice doesn’t really fit the instruments in the background, both having completely different vibes to them. As the song goes on they seem to blend together a bit better, however. The song also doesn’t fit the love song kind of feel the rest of the album has so far. Overall I’d give this song an 8/10.
Look Out! is the next song on cue, the soft guitar playing mixing with the soft voice is a perfect match. It feels like a song someone would just start playing on guitar and singing to. The nice familiar beat. How the voice carries on is a nice touch, nothing feels rushed, everything feels at the perfect past for the song. This song receives a 10/10.that
Everything About You is next. The song feels like a lullaby to me, something you’d sing just to your partner. The song has a soft catchy and personal feel to it. It’s a slow song which could be danced to with someone you hold dear. The song fits into the love feeling of the entire album as well. The song picks up as it goes on just a bit as well, pairing with everything nicely. Overall this song gets a 10/10
Next up, Give up Baby Go. the intro chords are a bit weird to me but definitely recognizable. It’s very upbeat and soothing, something you might find at a picnic vibe. There’s a nice little shimmy to it that puts a smile on your face. I give this song a 9/10 because the shimmy in the instruments doesn’t particularly fit with the soft voice in this one.
Last day of lonesome is the eight-song. I really love how it starts with the soft strumming of the guitar and the sort of city noises in the background. This whole song has an interesting and peaceful feeling to me. Like a song, you could use to sing to someone to sleep with. There are very soft drums in the background and mostly rely on the guitar and vocals. Overall this song receives a 10/10. It’s one of my favorites on the album.
Next up is Drips on a wire. It starts right off the bat with vocals and a soothing guitar string. It flows perfectly with the whole feel of the album. The chorus as well is very upbeat and gives a nice feeling to sing to when you’re just sitting there or doing something. It’s a catchy song and easy to get stuck in your head but that’s definitely not a bad thing. I give this song a 10/10
2015 is next. It has a nice start with a vibrating guitar strum in a sense. I like how the drums and the guitar pair up in this song and how the voice carries ties it all together. It’s a nice catchy song with a good soft feeling to it. This song receives a 9/10, just because some parts of the chorus stick out from the instrumental in a strange way.
From 2 to 3 is the final song on this album and what the album is named for. It starts with a very soft set of guitar chords that last for quite a bit all on their own. The vocals give me chills in this song, they fit perfectly with the starting chords and the overall feel of this song. The song is slow past and it brings a beautiful ending to the album. Overall I’d give this song a 10/10 yet again.
Now my ratings might be a bit biased because Peach Pit holds a special place in my heart but I do think I rated the songs quite fairly. Overall I would give this album a 9/10 because of the few moments where things didn’t fit right or songs just felt like they didn’t belong on the album. Overall each song is beautiful and made a wonderful album and I really recommend giving it a listen!
