Hailing from the Isle of Man via Brighton, Penelope Isles is the collaboration of brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter.
The band mix waves of ambient delays and fuzz guitar noise, sonic dynamics and melodic pop hooks entwined with girl-boy harmonies. Their self-produced home recordings portray an honest lo-fi approach when capturing their own music. Their live set is hypnotic, captivating and moving, smeared with glistening psych, dreamlike chimes, and potency that will transfix and satisfy.
After self-producing/releasing their debut EP ‘Comfortably Swell’ in 2015, Penelope Isles have consistently toured the UK/Europe as well as selling out shows both in Brighton and London. The band has opened for The Magic Numbers, Lost Horizons, Walter TV, Airwaves, British Sea Power and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
Penelope Isles will be releasing their debut LP with Bella Union in early 2019, after recording at the Bella Union Studios in Brighton.
