  • "Changed And Waiting"
  • "Song And Dance"

Peggy Sue's bluesy, soulful brood bounds easily from quirky to profoundly heartfelt, often over the course of a single song. The group has stood out next to tourmates such as Mumford & Sons and Kate Nash with its masterfully crafted melodies.

"Changed and Waiting" builds slowly, just waiting to explode, but it never does. Peggy Sue singers Rosa Slade and Katy Young capture the feeling when a relationship's inadequacy becomes undeniable, and sing through clenched teeth, "You will find me changed and waiting / wanting more than you could hope for." Hear this song, and another from the recent Acrobats, on today's installment of World Cafe: Next.
