Like breaking open a rock to discover a crystal inside. Shimmering, intimate and beautifully destructive, this is the experience of Penelope Isles. Siblings Jack and Lily Wolter make music that reveals a curiosity and sensitivity to the world around them. The four-piece band from Brighton via the Isle of Man have a sound that unfolds both dramatically and softly. Nostalgic, but undeniably new, Penelope Isles’ debut LP ‘Until The Tide Creeps In’ is released June 2019 on Bella Union Records. For the lovers of early Arcade Fire, Grandaddy and Mogwai.
