PEGGY SUE

Peggy Sue are London based indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band self-released critically acclaimed Vices in 2020, following three albums on Wichita Recordings, and have toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit.

Vices borrows in equal parts from the perfectly-constructed pop songs of the 1960s and the understated, noisy guitar experiments of 90s indie bands such as The Breeders and Blur. The new material sees front-women Slade and Young joined by Zara Toppin (Deep Throat Choir) on drums and Benjamin Gregory (GRIP TIGHT) on bass who bring a fresh energy and clarity to the band's enduringly captivating dual vocals.

Peggy Sue have always looked to the darkness as well as the light, often playing each side of the coin out in the same song. "Lots of songs on the record are sort of messed-up love songs for things that feel good, but aren't necessarily good for you – like getting staying out too late, or taking too much comfort from certain people," Young explains. "That kind of interplay between the positive and the negative has always been in Peggy Sue songs, but it's particularly true of this album. It's about the things you do to lift you up when you're down, or distract you when you're sad, that can end up circling back."
