Welcome to BCIT’s Evolution 107.9

At Evolution, we shake things up!

We look a little different and sound a little different – because we are! We’re dedicated to experimentation, creativity, and distinctiveness. Part of our uniqueness comes from the fact that we are all students at BCIT. We are always learning and asking questions and invite you to come along for the ride.

Major label, indie label, or no label – if it’s good and it rocks – we’ll play it!

A Year To Remember, Or At Least For One Vancouver Band

Currently, one Vancouver-based indie band has taken this break from reality to continue its steady trajectory upward in the mainstream music scene. Peach Pit has been blessing us with their rhythmic use of chords progressions and catchy vocal effects all while also producing a sound that is so intriguing. The pandemic hasn’t slowed them down one bit. Since the release of their breakthrough debut EP, Sweet FA, in 2016 Peach Pit hasn’t looked back.

In 2021 they have already been nominated at the 2021 Juno Awards for breakthrough artist of the year. Even though they did not win that award it shows what their hard work and dedication have done for them. This weekend, Firefly Music Festival, is taking place in Dover, Deleware from Sept. 23rd to 26th. This is one of the most sought-after musical events in North America.

With headling artists Billie Eilish, The Killers, Tame Impala, and Lizzo, Firefly intends to put on a show to remember at a time when people are clamoring to experience live music once again. What was the last live concert you attended? Doesn’t it feel like forever ago? Being whisked away in a crowd of singing and dancing fans all vibing to your favorite artists.

Well, this weekend our friends out east will have the pleasure of hearing Peach Pit play the “Wonder” stage Friday, Sept 24th from 4:15-5:00. Other notable names that day are Wiz Khalifa, Cage The Elephant, Rezz, and Judah & The Lion put them with some incredible company. As all of this is happening this groovy band isn’t done yet.

On October 1st, 2021 Peach Pit plans to release a new song called Up Granvill. Now, this one already has infectious vibes from their thirty-second video release on YouTube. As we watch what looks to be cardboard cutouts of the band members we’re left to wonder what the symbolism of that might be. But if it’s anything like what they’ve given us before we should be all in for a good time.
