This year sees the release of their highly anticipated new album Which Way to Happy.

When you’re trying to make it through tough times, you need a little light to find your way. That light blazes brightly on the alchemical second album from Penelope Isles, an album forged amid emotional upheaval and band changes. Setting the uncertainties of twentysomething life to alt-rock and psychedelic songs brimming with life, colour and feeling, Which Way to Happy emerges as a luminous victory for Jack and Lily Wolter, the siblings whose bond holds the band tight at its core. Produced by Jack and mixed by US alt-rock legend Dave Fridmann, the result is an intoxicating leap forward for the Brighton-based band, following the calling-card DIY smarts of their 2019 debut, Until the Tide Creeps In. Sometimes it swoons, sometimes it soars. Sometimes it says it’s OK to not be OK. And sometimes it says it’s OK to look for the way to happy, too. Pitched between fertile coastal metaphors and winged melodies, intimate confessionals and expansive cosmic pop, deep sorrows and serene soul-pop pick-you-ups, it transforms “difficult second album” clichés into a thing of glorious contrasts: a second-album surge of up-close, heartfelt intimacies and expansive, experimental vision.

Penelope Isles will be playing headline dates in support of Which Way to Happy.

See them appear at Gullivers in Manchester and Oslo in London. Tickets available with Gigantic.

Artist Bio

Penelope Isles are centred around siblings Jack and Lily Wolter, originally from the Isle of Man, and for several years now based in Brighton.

Their debut album Until the Tide Creeps In was produced by the band at the Bella Union studios in London and Brighton. They create dynamic blissed-out moments soaked in fuzz-noise waves - their songs fragile yet ferocious. Indie-psych currents and lustrous melodies blend with the siblings' voices. To support the release they played over 150 shows all over the world, including 100 shows in 2019 alone and three tours in the USA.

Since then, they have hit the road with The Flaming Lips, Wallows and The Magic Numbers. Loved by fans, DJs, tourmates and writers.

Continuing to dazzle and amaze, Penelope Isles now follow up with new album Which Way to Happy. It's serene take on indie pop elevates the soul with peak moments of bright hooks and gorgeous melodies, making them out as one of the most exciting UK bands of the last few years.
