‘All N My Grill’ [Missy Elliott cover]

If you haven’t yet heard of this wonderful trio, we strongly recommend you check them out pronto. Brighton-based Rosa Rex and Katy Klaw originally performed under the moniker Peggy Sue & The Pirates, but have since settled on the less fussy moniker of Peggy Sue and recruited drummer and infamous kazooist Olly to give their quirky, seaside folk more oomph. Peggy Sue make music that’s uniquely identifiable from the very first bars, especially when the melancholy, R&B-style vocals they excel in get to work. Today’s free track sees Peggy Sue applying their homespun, DIY sound to Missy Elliott’s ‘All N My Grill’, and has already proved massively popular as a highlight of their live show. Obviously recorded with threadbare production (keep an ear out for the sound of a plane flying over in the background), the emphasis is on Rosa and Katy’s vocal delivery, backed by subdued acoustic guitars and a homemade instrument or two. While it misses the richer charms of their studio efforts, this is an oddly haunting cover with clear, sailing harmonies from a band who are surely set for big things. MP3 after the jump.
