We’re delighted to be bringing Peggy Sue to the Kings Arms!

Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young. Founded in 2007, the band have released four albums on Wichita Recordings, culminating in the critically acclaimed Choir Of Echoes, and toured with the likes of Jack White, Local Natives and First Aid Kit.

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).

Tour support comes from GRIP TIGHT. GRIP TIGHT is the musical project of London born, Berlin-based producer and vocalist Benjamin Luke Gregory. Creating darkly hypnotic songs using synthesisers and mutilated vocal samples, his music has garnered airplay from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, and has been described as ‘full-blooded and soulful contemporary pop’ (DIY). His debut album is scheduled for release later this year.
