“How Heavy the Quiet That Grew Between Your Mouth and Mine”
From Peggy Sue’s Choir of Echoes
Yep Roc

Liner notes: The eerie harmonies of singers Rosa Slade and Katy Young take a tender turn on this acoustic ballad, as a sorrowful lover ponders failed romance.

Behind the music: The British trio's last album revisited the soundtrack of Kenneth Anger’s classic underground film Scorpio Rising, with warped covers of oldies like "Hit the Road Jack" and "My Boyfriend’s Back."
