Penelope Isles share “Terrified”

With the release of their new album Which Way To Happy less than two weeks away on 5th November, and the physical release date following on 21st January, Penelope Isles today share new single and album highlight “Terrified”. The track is a reflection on anxiety set to a dreamy sunburst of psychedelic jangle-pop. As frontman Jack Wolter explains: “It’s about those days when you’re dying inside but have to pop out to the shop, bumping into someone, having to put on a magic show, pretending to appear that everything is OK. It’s a song that has such a happy-fun-summery exterior but lyrically is totally the opposite. It’s one of self-doubt, displacement and finding something really terrifying to handle. Sometimes we hide a lot behind ourselves. ‘Terrified’ was an outlet for me to be able to tackle scary thoughts and worries in more of an abstract way. Things can seem impossible to talk about and articulate sometimes. I feel that making this album has enabled me and my sister Lily to open up a lot more and be honest with our songs as it just makes them so much more real.”

Due to unforeseen circumstances Penelope Isles have been forced to move some of their Autumn tour dates to early 2022. The band have also announced a raft of new shows for the tour which covers pretty much the entirety of the UK as well as taking a detour into Ireland.  Tickets / info HERE.
