Penelope Isles Head Out On Summer Tour

Penelope Isles are once again heading out on the road to celebrate the early 2022 release of their album Which Way To Happy. The tour will include stops at a number of summer festivals including Primavera, Glastonbury, Ypsigrock and Green Man Festival. To mark the tours kick off this week, the band have shared an alternative version of their track “Play It Cool” as well as the below statement…

“We have been working on how to re-imagine songs from Which Way To Happy for our festival shows this summer…. Play It Cool seemed to fall into place a lot easier than others… maybe because we stripped a lot of things away that are in the album version, so we felt that it would be ‘cool’ to re-mix and create an alternative version, where the arrangement and sonics are more like how we are doing it live. Everything is pretty hard panned in the stereo mix, so the drums are on one side and the bass on the other. It’s kind of fun to pan to one side and isolate things. Inspired by those early Byrds and Beatles mixes.

The video is a little nod to when you feel like you’re in a film, riding your bike or walking with music in your ears. Your main character moment.

As we head to Italy today for some gigs on our way to Primavera next week, we are thrilled to show you this new mix of Play It Cool and a lovely wee video to accompany! We are also playing all these shows below before the end of the year and cannot wait to say hi to you all somewhere along the way. Love Penny Isles xx”
