Track Of The Day: Peggy Sue – ‘Motorcade’

Set to release their fourth album early next year, London duo Peggy Sue – Katy Young and Rosa Slade – have charmed our ears over the last few years, not only with their own band, but as part of the incredible 30-strong singing group Deep Throat Choir (whose rendition of ‘Baby’ I recently walked down the aisle to). Having taken a bit of a hiatus from writing together, they’ve now reunited and found themselves again.

Taken from the upcoming album, new single ‘Motorcade’ flows with the pair’s distinctive rich vocals as it interweaves lilting ’60s inspired melodies and a ’90s garage scuzz. Inspired by feelings of being honest with yourself when ending a relationship, luscious harmonies float along a bright, uplifting soundscape, building with a shimmering energy to create a magnificently more-ish dose of sunshine to aid these cold, rainy days. Of the track, the band explain:

“‘Motorcade’ is about recognising the difference between what you need and what you want… and asking for it as fast and loud as you like. I wrote it in the first wave of relief after a big break-up – it was probably the first moment that I was ready to be a bit mean and honest about it all…”

Vices, the upcoming album from Peggy Sue, is set for release 21st February 2020 via French Exit.
