Penelope Isles share new single “Round” taken from upcoming debut album “Until The Tide Creeps In”

Up-and-coming Brighton, UK four-piece Penelope Isles recently announced their remarkable debut album Until the Tide Creeps In, out on  Bella Union on July 12th. Following the album’s first track “Chlorine,” the brother/sister centric band shares another great song off the record entitled “Round.” “It’s a love song – a collection of moments and thoughts of what it’s like to be in love,” explains the band’s Jack Wolter who self-produced the album. “All the beautiful moments and all the difficult times too. Going round full circle. The verses are like the beautiful times that we will always remember where  the chorus is the truth of how it’s not always that easy.” 

Formed around the chemistry between siblings and dual songwriters Jack and Lily WolterUntil the Tide Creeps Inis an album deepened by shared experience. Born in Devon and raised on the Isle of Man, the Wolters’ bonds were strengthened by separation when Jack moved away to study art at university at 19, when Lily was 13. As he puts it, wryly, “By the time I moved home Lily was not so much of an annoying younger sister anymore and had grown up and started playing in bands and writing songs. We soon became very close. I had written some songs, so we started a band called Your Gold Teeth. We toured a bit and then Lily left for Brighton to study songwriting. A couple of years later I moved down and we started Penelope Isles together.” 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 quartet completed by Jack Sowtonand Becky Redford.

Crisp and woozy, blissful and biting, Until the Tide Creeps In is an album deepened by shared experience: experiences of, in Jack’s words, “leaving home, moving away, dealing with transitions in life and growing up. We are six years apart, so we had a different experience of some of this, but we share a similar inspiration when writing music.”
