This from the band: “Thanks to everyone who has bought tickets for our postponed gigs at Con Club, Lewes. Tickets have been flying off the shelves and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the show happens ASAP. We’ll be turning the original one night into a series of socially distanced performances at the Con Club in May 2021. This will mean a slightly different approach to things, but we promise you a great show! We can’t wait to see you all soon.
For every sibling band forged in rivalry, many others mount an unassailable genetic argument for keeping the music in the family. The latter is assuredly the case with Penelope Isles, a brother-sister-centred alt-rock quartet from Brighton (via Isle of Man) whose debut album, Until the Tide Creeps In, was released through Bella Union last summer. Formed around the chemistry between dual songwriters Jack and Lily Wolter, the quartet’s expansive DIY mix of translucent dream-pop, fuzz-rock guitars and indie-psych flushes comes lovingly dipped in exquisite harmonies and lustrous melodies: a combination so intuitive, you’d think it was in their blood.
Though Jack and Lily write separately, their disparate songs were chucked into a shared pot and Penelope Isles surfaced, fuelled by a passion of lo-fi sounding records and a DIY ethos inspired by all those who sail its seas: Pavement, Deerhunter, Pixies and Tame Impala number among notable influences, alongside Radiohead and The Thrills.
’Until The Tide Creeps’ was included in Rough Trade’s top 100 albums of 2019 as well opening track ’Chlorine’ being named ’Song Of The Year’ by BBC6Music’s Shaun Keaveny.
