Biography

Brighton, England indie folk duo Peggy Sue was formed by longtime friends Rosa Slade and Katy Young. The group's signature blend of brooding anti-folk and fiery indie pop was born in basements, living rooms, and small clubs in 2006. A successful tour with like-minded British indie rockers Mumford & Sons earned Peggy Sue attention outside of the local scene, resulting in a record deal with Yep Roc in the States, and Wichita Records in the U.K.. The band’s debut album, Fossils and Other Phantoms, was released in June 2010, with Acrobats arriving the following year. Their widely praised sophomore record took a step away from the slightly twee folk sound of their debut and introduced electric guitars and moody, indie rock-influenced melodies that were bolstered by the addition of drummer Olly Joyce. Toward the end of 2011 they performed at a temporary cinema in Hackney, London, where they played an interpretation of the rock & roll soundtrack to cult film Scorpio Rising. They went into the studio with Jimmy Robertson to record the versions, which appeared as a limited-edition run of LPs in 2012. The trio took their time to write their third studio release and returned to the studio with Robertson in 2013 to lay down tracks for Choir of Echoes, which arrived in January 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger & Scott Kerr
