Penelope Isles, the project of UK-born and bred siblings, co-songwriters and co-vocalists Lily and Jack Wolter, released their self-produced debut album Until The Tide Creeps in in 2018 on Bella Union. Today, on the heels of announcing an extensive UK tour for this Fall, the band shares the first taste of their forthcoming, not-yet-announced sophomore album.

“Sailing Still” is out now, alongside a captivating video directed by Jack. He explains, “Before the enforced break due to COVID-19, we spent pretty much all of 2019 driving ourselves around Europe and America having some incredible adventures as a band and it seemed that everything since then had been falling apart. Writing and recording new music as a huge part of the recovery process and when making this film for ‘Sailing Still’ I wanted Lily and I to get back on the road somehow, as travelling has been such a massive part of our band ever since we began. So I had this idea of filming Lily in a myriad of places and scenarios, both urban and rural, coastal and inland. Mountains and rivers, council flats and tunnels, cafes and bridges. We drove up and down the country for a week, sleeping in the van, and waking up at the crack of dawn to start filming again. Reconnecting as a band again but also spending time together as brother and sister was special for filming this real heartbreaker of a song.”

UK artist Gracey released her EP The Art of Closure earlier this year. Today she releases the video for the single “99%.”

‘99%’ is extra special as it was actually one of the first song’s I wrote for myself. I instantly knew it had to stay with me and it’s acted as a pillar to build my sound around ever since. It marks the end of one chapter and a little nod to the next! I hope you enjoy.”

Brye is a 17 year old bedroom pop artist from Chicago. Cavetown is a UK indie artist. Together they have a duet version of Brye’s song “Lemons.”

Cavetown shares, “Hopping on this track with Brye felt like giving my Lemon Boy character a little moment in the spotlight for the first time since releasing my album Lemon Boy in 2018! It was fun to write from his perspective again, and I think it complemented what Brye was portraying in her song.”

“In this revamp of ‘Lemons’ we get a taste of both sides of the story. Working with Cavetown and seeing this song from the perspective of the “sour little boy” was such a fun challenge,” says Brye.
