Our Song of the Day is from the talented London-based trio Peggy Sue. The track ‘Idle’ is their new single and features on their forthcoming new album ‘Choir of Echoes’ in their own words:
“Idle is about being unemployed and incurably thoughtful. The opening and closing parts are a kind of troubled gospel song – a prayer for purpose in the knowledge that the purpose will probably not be a ‘good’ one.
It’s about impatience and distractions and thinking about things too much. And of course it’s about a boy.”
Choir of Echoes is Peggy Sue’s third full length album and will be released on January 27th 2014 through Wichita Recordings and Yep Roc Records. It was Produced at the legendary Rockfield Studio in South Wales by Jimmy Robertson (the man who made the “…Scorpio Rising” collection), and mixed by John Askew (who also worked with the band on their debut full-length, ‘Fossils and Other Phantoms’).
