Penelope Isles Share Video For Current Single “Terrified” & Release New Album “Which Way To Happy” Out Now via Bella Union!

To celebrate the release of their new album Which Way To Happy, which arrived on Friday via Bella Union with the physical release following on 21st January, Penelope Isles have shared a video to current single and album highlight “Terrified”.

The track is a reflection on anxiety set to a dreamy sunburst of psychedelic jangle-pop while the colourful video features frontman Jack Wolter getting the full clown makeover. Of the video Jack says: “We wanted to capture some kind of juxtaposition within the video for “Terrified”. The manic, hurried face-painting getting slapped on but with me singing almost bored and spun-out in real-time. A funny, supposed-to-be-joyful clown framed in a wonky black and white frame. The instrumentation of the song is very much the polar opposite to what I’m singing about and so we tried to continue this theme in the video. We also wanted something visually a little less busy and intense than the other videos we have shared from the album

Penelope Isles creates this intimate ensemble filled with reflective currents and emotive angles throughout. The duo focuses on this buoyant beat with an array of plush effects. Those dazzling notes and crashes shimmer across the ambiance whilst the drum adds this fierce backbone to the release. This new track brings emotion to the forefront oozing from the charming vocal harmonies and the intimate lyrics. This really is an expressive journey you wish to embark on from the moment you hit play. The outfit makes the audience present throughout every attribute of the infectious ensemble.
