Penelope Isles share “Have You Heard” video directed by Jamie Thraves 

Following excellent reviews for their new album Which Way To Happy, released digitally last month via Bella Union and out physically on 21st January, Penelope Isles  share a brilliant video for LP highlight “Have You Heard” to coincide with their announcement of a month of US tour dates running throughout March 2002. “Have You Heard” receives a gripping narrative-meets-live-performance video shot in black and white, helmed by renowned director Jamie Thraves– watch below.

A fast, ferocious, and fun-fuelled track that showcases the immersive energy of Penelope Isles. The accompanying video, reflects that intoxicating world that Penelope Isles crafts. Those dazzling notes and crashes shimmer across the ambiance whilst the drum adds this fierce backbone to the release, what an electrifying outfit.

Commenting on the video Jamie Thraves says: “I heard Penelope Isles on 6 Music and was blown away. They seemed to channel all my favourite bands in one. I’ve been into this idea of reaching out to new bands via Instagram to see if they’d be into my music video work and Jack and Lily were open from the get go. They gave me an absolute gem of a track in ‘Have You Heard’ and they were totally open to what I wanted to do visually. This video is a nod and reference to a number of videos and short films I’ve made in the past, themes I’m interested in, and they gave me total freedom to do what I wanted. They are total stars and very down to earth and lovely people. They were so much fun to work with and we had a blast.”
