There Always Was by Peggy Sue. published on 2011-09-07T13:46:29Z Produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Giant Sand, Eels etc) in early 2011, the album finds the band moving away from the acoustic sounds of their first album to something heavier but just as subtle and beautiful. This new sound may surprise some fans - only one song on the album features acoustic guitar - but the dual vocals and tribal drums familiar from their debut are still present and more developed and breath-taking than ever before. The band released their debut album Fossils and other Phantoms on Wichita Recordings in 2010. It won the band acclaim for its subtle but powerful song writing. The NME called them 'head-over-heels brilliant', The Guardian praised their 'thrilling' musicianship and awarded the album four stars. They toured tirelessly for the rest of 2010, playing runs around Europe with both Local Natives and The Archie Bronson Outfit and around North America with She Keeps Bees, a co-headline run with Sky Larkin and finally in support of Kate Nash.
