"Validate Me" arrives after last month's lead single "Motorcade".

Speaking about the new offering, Katy Young of the duo says, "We were listening to a lot of Ramones, and female bands that borrow from them - like Colleen Green and Vivian Girls - and "Validate Me" takes inspiration from the way they can combine sweet and vulnerable and seething and heavy all in one track. This song owns up to a set of emotions that aren’t particularly empowering – to getting validation from someone else’s desire for you. But there’s something empowering about admitting to them. Lots of the songs on the new album Vices are sort of messed-up love songs for things that feel good, but aren't necessarily good for you – like getting staying out too late, or taking too much comfort from certain people."

The duo's 2017 single "Slow Fade" will also feature on their forthcoming LP Vices, whick is their first album since 2014's Choir of Echoes.

The album was recorded between various studios in London including Soup Studios and Press Play with Ben Gregory (Grip Tight) on bass, drummer Dan Blackett (Landshapes), and Euan Hinshelwood (Younghusband). Vices is produced by Jimmy Robertson, who also produced their last record.

"Validate Me" is out now. Peggy Sue's Vices album will be released 21 February 2020 via French Exit, and is available to pre-order now. They play The Dome in London on 9 April 2020. Find out more.
