RESCHEDULED: Due to the ongoing Pandemic and scheduling issues affected by this - the Peggy Sue show scheduled for The Dome, Tufnell Park in London on October 6th will now take place on March 5th 2021 at Islington Assembly Hall as a socially distanced event. Ticket holders will receive full details on how to transfer their tickets to the new venue in a COVID secure way.
Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released three albums on Wichita Recordings, culminating in 2014's critically acclaimed 'Choir Of Echoes', and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit.
'Slow Fade' is the first single from Peggy Sue's upcoming fourth album. After a three year break - during which Rosa Slade and Katy Young have been performing with all-female singing group Deep Throat Choir - 'Slow Fade' is an apt comeback; a melancholy celebration of patience. It is a dreamy breakup song, one that let's you hang around lazily in the days when you aren't ok yet.
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 such as The Breeders and Blur. The new material sees front-women Slade and Young joined by Dan Blackett (Landshapes) on drums and Benjamin Gregory (GRIP TIGHT) on bass who bring a fresh energy and clarity to the band's enduringly captivating duel vocals.
DEEP THROAT CHOIR
Deep Throat Choir has been going since 2013, formed by Luisa Gerstein, we started with a simple desire to get together once a week and raise our voices together, to strip music down to just vocals and drums, to rework the words and melodies of other artists like Sylvan Esso, Electrelane, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, MK, and write our own music.
There were five to begin with and now we are thirty. Singing together every week, usually in a circle, is still the most important thing we do. We write together, put on our own shows and nights, perform and collaborate with other artists.
This is the electronic project of English producer Benjamin Gregory. Subtly inspired by Italo-Disco and Chicago House, GRIP TIGHT brings hints of Kraftwerk, Joy Division and Arthur Russell to create darkly atmospheric and captivating pop songs.
