from their forthcoming album ‘Choir Of Echoes’, Brighton trio Peggy Sue return with their new video for ‘Idle’. Combining smoldering thrums, husky harmonies and some super slinky guitar-work, it’s a song that blends all the smokiest parts of country, blues and rock – and even a little gospel.

“‘Idle’ is about being unemployed and incurably thoughtful,” the band explain. “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.”

Set to found-footage of 1920’s dancers, the video is a sexy (and slightly seedy) time-warp. It’s even got a parrot – and a lady dancing on a sombrero. What more could you want?
