Peggy Sue are London-via-Brighton indie duo Rosa Slade and Katy Young who 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.
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 new material sees front-women Slade and Young joined by Dan Blackett (Landshapes) on drums and Benjamin Gregory (GRIP TIGHT) on bass who bring an fresh energy and clarity to the band’s enduringly captivating duel vocals.
