Pittsburgh Event

The fantastic post-punk band Penelope Isles coming to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, February 26th

Penelope Isles, who recently released their critically-acclaimed debut album Until the Tide Creeps In, is about to embark on a North American fall tour and will be stopping through Pittsburgh on Wednesday, February 26th to perform at Mr. Smalls Theater supporting Wallows. On the album, KEXP raves “The debut album from this British band led by brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter is a well-crafted, atmospheric blend of dreamy psych-pop, arty prog and more.” On release day, Bandcamp said, “…with its gossamer swirls of guitar and hypnotic baroque melodies, Until The Tide Creeps In is full of magical moments that contemplate the Earth’s unknowability, and the complicated humans that inhabit it.
Check out the fantastic singles from the album “Leipzig,” “Chlorine,” “Round” and “Cut Your Hair.”

“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 “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 “…[a] unique brand of noisy pop…” – FLOOD Magazine “[Penelope Isles] emerges with “Chlorine,’ sounding like Kevin Parker leaving the insular nature of Tame Impala behind and forming an earnest, fuzzy indie rock band.” – Uproxx “There’s a feeling of nostalgia and jubilation when listening to ‘Round,’ with the lo-fi indie offering held together by dreamy percussion, psychedelic guitar rhythms and the engaging male/female harmonies of the Wolter siblings.” – Indie Shuffle “…a dreamy but biting piece of guitar pop…soaring, pastoral, highly intelligent songwriting.” – Clash Music
