Peggy Sue (Anika Mottershaw)

Peggy Sue
"Song & Dance"
Playing on Wednesday at Webster Hall
(125 E. 11th St., East Village)
Get: Tickets ($20) | Directions 

Rock trio Peggy Sue made its debut in 2010 with an album of genial, DIY folk-pop. The follow-up record, Acrobats, finds the group exploring darker, moodier terrain with fuzzy, distorted rock that evokes Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey.

The Brighton, England-based crew actively sought the sound by teaming up John Parish, who has worked with Harvey, and reportedly listened to Sonic Youth and fellow alt-rockers The Breeders for inspiration.

Download the band's single “Song and Dance” from the new album above. The music video below, for the song “Lover Gone,” is from Peggy Sue’s first effort Fossils and Other Phantoms.

Peggy Sue kicks off its US tour at Webster Hall on Wednesday night.
