Penelope Isles announce 2021 tour

Having released their brilliant debut album to much acclaim and playing over 100 live shows in 2019, Penelope Isles are pleased to announce that they will be back on the road again in 2021. To celebrate the announcement, the band have shared the final episode of their Penny Isles TV series, which sees them touring in the US with Wallows. As Lily Wolter expresses, “touring with Wallows was like nothing we have ever experienced. It was a real honour to play to such an amazing bunch of kids every night, with so much love to give! We love touring America, playing mini golf, eating Raising Canes and meeting new friends for life. Big love to Wallows for having us along!” 

This is the season finale of Penny Isles TV Season 1, filmed across America last February. The band have since been quarantined together working on their next album and are very much looking forward to getting back on the road.
Critical acclaim for Until The Tide Creeps In by Penelope Isles…

“Timeless and special… Unashamedly bight melodies that throw you into the sunlight and make the darker moments even more striking.” DIY

“A knockout album with instant charm… When Penelope Isles hit the spot they hit it with a dazzled burst of refracted light.” Metro

“An undeniably lovely melange of dream pop and gentle psychedelia.” Sunday Times

“Hard not to get hooked on from the start… elegant and catchy songwriting that springboards them in to the many sets of arms ready to welcome them.” The Line Of Best Fit

Until The Tide… is a generous, lively dream–pop offering. They soar like Spiritualized; they shimmer like Mazzy Star. On seven–minute epic ‘Gnarbone’ they go motorik, using found sound like Public Service Broadcasting.” London In Stereo

“Sweltering guitars scorch the earth [on ‘Chlorine’]… While summery synths and keys frolic in spaces left between the drum line and spiraling vocals, the riff phrases communicate nearly as much warmth and meaning as the lyrics do.” Stereogum

“There is a grandeur to their songs, big and swelling, ebbs and flows…The whole band is seriously talented, and…seriously rock, too.” Brooklyn Vegan

“Soars towards the heavens… echoes of Pavement and Deerhunter.” DORK Magazine

“Choppy guitar and thumping percussion combine to create a markedly DIY aesthetic throughout the video’s three minutes and five seconds of scrapbooked collage visuals. Said DIY aesthetic, both sonically as well as visually, operates as a self-aware style, one that brings an element of dirty garage rock to the haze of dream-pop flushes.” Paste

“…dreamy but biting guitar pop…soaring, pastoral, highly intelligent songwriting.” Clash Music
