iTunes Review

Naming a band after a seminal American rock ’n’ roll song might be asking for trouble, but Britain’s Peggy Sue is fearless; it also brazenly siphons American music out of its native habitat and gives it a new pot to brew in. Longtime friends Rosa Slade and Katy Young (along with drummer Olly Joyce) use everything from accordion and ukulele to trumpet and mandolin as they reshape what's essentially stark and unsettling Americana folk. Using their impressive vocals as the centerpoint, Young and Slade create harmonies that build like storm clouds and melodies that circle and swoop with sensuous fervor. They cover topics like crushed affections, physical desire, and death; it’s a sour Appalachian mash that feels like PJ Harvey crossed with She Keeps Bees’ Jessica Larrabee. The centerpiece track “The Watchman” stealthily creeps along with an ominous snare drum atop a bluesy rhythm. Some minor-key guitar work thrums below, before it reaches an early eruptive coda and then quietly retreats. Beauty.

Get this, get this!!

On this wonderful easy listening album, Peggy Sue never fails to dissapoint with absolutely creative writing and hauntingly good voices. I believe this may be one of the loveliest fresh folk groups around. I heard the infectious yet snarky hymn of "Watchmen" on a playlist and after listening to the album many times, "The Reminder," "Fossils" and "Read It In the Paper" stand just as strong and every other song is delicious. Love, Love, Love

Peggy who? Peggy Sue!

Okay these girls and guy... Are great this entire album is wonderful. I love the mix up in instruments from accordion, acoustic to electric guitar, washboard I'm not sure but it sounds like it. <3 it's hard to pick favorite song from the album because they are all that good. But if your not going to support them by purchasing the whole album at least get The Shape we made, the remainder, and yo mama. Rosa, Katy, and Olly keep it up because I can't get enough.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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...
