Peggy Sue Set To Release New Record, Tour + MP3 & Video

UK anti-folk group Peggy Sue are releasing their first full length record, Fossils and Other Phantoms on June 1 via Yep Roc Records. That's good news as I like Peggy Sue. Even better news for those of us in NYC who like to get out and catch bands live. They'll be at Pianos on June 10. Good music and Pianos chest achingly cold margaritas sounds like fun just waiting to happen. See you there? In the meantime, check out the video for "Watchman." You can also grab the song in the MP3 Grab below.

With its kitchen sink approach to making music and off-kilter duets, Brighton UK duo Peggy Sue’s first full length release Fossils and Other Phantoms is a record to satisfy anyone’s gypsy wanderlust.

Following in the anti-folk tradition, Fossils and Other Phantoms explores delicate and dark themes of self-worth, regret, longing—the kind of melancholy that creeps into your bones in the middle of the night well after a breakup or the death of a loved one—all riding over drummer Olly’s urgent blasts of percussion and the firework pop of Rosa and Katy’s searing vocals.
