Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released four albums, culminating in the critically acclaimed 'Choir Of Echoes', and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and La Luz.
Fifth album 'Vices', due Autumn 2019, will be their first in four years and the first release on the band's own Souvenirs Records. 'Slow Fade', a lo-fi celebration of restlessness (released impatiently in 2017), was an apt first taste of the melancholy optimism that fills the ten tracks of Vices. The single and upcoming album borrow in equal parts from the perfectly-constructed pop songs of the 1960s and the understated, noisey guitar experiments of 90s indie bands including The Breeders and Blur.
Peggy Sue’s front-women Rosa and Katy have spent the past four years in the great company of all-female singing group Deep Throat Choir (Bella Union), building Vices gradually all the while in studios across London with the help of producer Jimmy Robertson (Choir of Echoes) and new recruits Dan Blackett (Landshapes), Ben Gregory (GRIP TIGHT) and Euan Hinshelwood (Younghusband).
