With just a week until the start of their upcoming UK tour, Peggy Sue are delighted to share a new Barbaroassa remix of album standout track 'And Always Is'. The rework is a B-side on their upcoming single 'Figure of Eight' out April 14th via Wichita Recordings.
Peggy Sue are currently on tour across Europe and will hit the UK next week, playing a series of dates across the country and finishing with a sold out show at Oslo in London on April 15th. The band have also recently just been announced to play Knee Deep Festival in Plymouth later this summer.
London-based Barbarossa completely changes the dimensions of Peggy Sue in his rework of 'And Always Is'. The original emotionally powerful track is injected with a hard bass line & mellow riff throughout, presenting the post-folk trio in totally new light.
Since releasing their album, it's safe to say that Peggy Sue have kept themselves busy. Whilst touring across North America, 'The Shape We Made', a track taken from their debut album was featured in the third episode of the new House of Cards series, which just aired on Netflix. As well as this, the band also recorded a swanky new video for their previous single 'Longest Day of The Year Blues', which can be seen here.
'Choir of Echoes' is an album about singing. About losing your voice and finding it again" they explain. "Voices keeping each other company and voices competing for space. The call and response of the kindest and the cruelest words. Choruses. Duets. Whispers and shouts."
If you've ever wondered "Peggy Who?", then here's your answer. The past two years have allowed the band time to experience a vast array of new sights and sounds, which have translated wonderfully into their new work. 'Choir of Echoes' sees Peggy Sue come back around on their best form to date, and provides an emotional venture into a realm of sensibility that this band have to offer.
