PENELOPE ISLES Share New Song + Video “Leipzig”

Today the Brighton, UK-based quartet Penelope Isles, led by brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter, have released “Leipzig” from their forthcoming debut album Until the Tide Creeps In, due out July 12th on Bella Union. You can watch the lighthearted video, directed and edited by Jack Wolter, HERE, and pre-order the album HERE. Full list of the band’s EU and UK dates below.

Jack and Lily Wolter had this to say about the video:

We filmed the video in Berlin, Munich, Hannover, Diest and Luxembourg whilst on tour in Europe last year. We would constantly be on the lookout for perfect spots along the way and would keep our jeans and white t shirts folded up in a pile in the van ready to go. It’s funny that we actually forgot to shoot anything whilst in Leipzig! Although the shot of of J Sow playing drums in the woods looks very picturesque, we were actually all surrounded by German truck driver’s roadside turds! We had a laugh making the video and were all very impressed by Becky’s moves on the bridge in Munich! Germany is one of our favourite places to tour and it feels lovely to have these places within our music video.

Penelope Isle’s “Leipzig”is the third track released from the forthcoming album following “Chlorine,” as well as the love song “Round,” which is “a collection of moments and thoughts of what it’s like to be in love,” explains the band’s Jack Wolter who self-produced the album.
