Peggy Sue reveal a new video for their latest single Idle in anticipation of their forthcoming third studio album, Choir of Echoes which is set for release on January 27 through Wichita Recordings. The band will play a sold out show at St Pancras Church on the same night to celebrate the album’s release. This will be followed by a full UK tour in April which includes a newly announced show in Coventry.
The striking vintage visuals of Peggy Sue’s found-footage collage finds a series of 1920s dancers moving in sync with the the sounds of this gripping track, making for a clip that’s captivating yet somewhat uncomfortable.
Choir of Echoes 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).
Choir of Echoes is an album about singing, about losing your voice and finding it again. Peggy Sue 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.”
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.
