PEGGY SUE

 

Peggy Sue is: Rosa Slade, Katy Young and Olly Joyce. Through old-fashioned hard work and by embracing new technology Peggy Sue have unintentionally pioneered a new business model in a now fractured music industry. They weren’t looking for a traditional record deal but when Wichita Recordings stepped in, after witnessing a sold out ICA show in November 2009, it was obviously a meeting of minds and as the band’s favourite record label, the allure proved too strong. The deal was signed in December 2009 and not ones to waste time, Peggy Sue’s debut album was released in April 2010; 'Fossils and Other Phantoms'. The record featured tracks produced by Steve Ansell of Blood Red Shoes and Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons, the rest of the album was recorded in Brooklyn with producers Alex Newport (Two Gallants) and John Askew (The Dodos). the 2nd LP 'Acrobats' followed in 2011 and now in 2014, the band have released the critically aclaimed 'Choir Of Echoes'.


'Choir Of Echoes is made of 13 songs recorded last winter at Rockfield Studio in Monmouth, Wales and it will be released into the world on January 27th 2014 through Wichita Recordings in the UK and on January 28th through Yep Roc in North America. Although it has more songs than the new Justin Timberlake album, we must confess it is not as long in duration. Regardless we think you’ll still like it a lot.'
