Deep Sea Peach Tree is the New York-based music project of Kristof Denis (guitar/vocals) and friends Andrew Dell Isola (bass) and Wiley Watson (guitar).
Self-described as sleepy surf rock, they have a dreamy/jazzy/garage sound, drawing influence from jazz standards, shoegaze, classic rock, indie-rock and surf rock. While attending high school in NYC, Denis and his friend Adam Wanetik formed the band “Disco Cream”, releasing their debut EP as a duo in the Spring of 2016. It was not until all members attended Skidmore College in the Fall that John Colapinto was introduced to the band. They went on to change their name and play at various venues throughout NYC as well as Colleges throughout the northeast with bands such as Tonstartssbandht and Jeff The Brotherhood.
In June of 2017, they released their debut album “Vaguely Navy” on We Ride Bikes Records, an independent production collective consisting of Deep Sea Peach Tree and their brother band Flaccid Ashbacks. Denis’ Longtime friend Wiley Watson and new friend Andrew Dell Isola were added in the summer of 2018.
Their first single since Summer’s Glockcoma, they carry the warmth of the Summer into Winter with the hazy Certain Thoughts. This sweetly arranged single is tinged with a pensive melancholy and perfectly combines their era-spanning influences, with flavours of dream pop, shoegaze and indie pop.
Speaking on Certain Thoughts, Deep Sea Peach Tree share: “It’s like a hot cup of joe on a cold day. A surfy tune made for the winter. Kinda like a hug.”
