Peggy Sue

Biography

UK folk-pop group Peggy Sue are Brighton bohemians fueled by the idea that best friends make better music.

Katy Klaw, Rosa Rex and drummer Olly Olly Olly have been tagged with indie nomenclature from post-folk to anti-soul, but elementally the trio is a shambolic concoction of acoustic instruments and wry lyricism sung atop chugging gypsy rhythms.

Handmade instruments and unique vocal interplay add to a kitchen sink approach to music-making, resulting in a playfully dark aesthetic for the duo Kate Nash cites as her favorite band.
