Penelope Isles (UK)

The speciality of the house

In the Wolter’s kitchen, on Pop Hook Street (Brighton), the recipes are cooked up with a pinch of fuzz, a base of melancholy with a dash of reverb and they are not apt for those with Deerhunter and Teenage Fanclub intolerance. Jack and Lily AKA Penelope Isles, like brother like sister, know very well what it is to turn the heat up under ninety’s references until they become crispy on the outside and soft in the centre. What we have heard on from Until The Tide Creeps In makes it absolutely clear that in music and fraternity, there are things that are far more productive than stealing cassettes off each other or today’s equivalent, nicking the passwords for digital platforms.
