Independent Venue Week: Penelope Isles w/ The Howl and The Hum

8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
£6.00 concession // £8 advance

Hailing from the Isle of Man via Brighton, Penelope Isles is the collaboration of brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter. The band mix waves of ambient delays and fuzz guitar noise, sonic dynamics and melodic pop hooks entwined with girl-boy harmonies. Their self-produced home recordings portray an honest lo-fi approach when capturing their own music. Their live set is hypnotic, captivating and moving, smeared with glistening psych, dreamlike chimes, and potency that will transfix and satisfy. After self-producing/releasing their debut EP ‘Comfortably Swell’ in 2015, Penelope Isles have consistently toured the UK/Europe off their own backs (Wavey Head Bookings) working with some of the best promoters in the UK (Bird On The Wire, Parallel Lines & Melting Vinyl). As well as selling out shows both in Brighton and London, the band has opened for The Magic Numbers, Lost Horizons, Walter TV, Airwaves and British Sea Power.

For the lovers of Deerhunter, Neil Young, Radiohead, and The Magic Numbers.

The Howl and The Hum

The  Howl  &  The  Hum  are  a  miserable  disco  who  write  Bond  themes  for  film  where  Jimmy  is  still  hung  up  on that  girl. They  combine  dark  hypnotic  pop  with  post-punk  influences,  pierced  with  lyrics  that  make  you  call  your  mum  the  next  morning.  Following  acclaimed  sets  at  Neighbourhood  Festival  and  Loopallu  and  a  debut  tour  of  the  Scottish  Highlands  in  2017,  the  York-based  4-piece  embarked  on  their  first  headline  tour  in  England  in  early  2018  to  coincide  with  the  release  of  new  single  ‘Portrait  I’.  Following  this  the  band  are  releasing  a  series  of  new  songs  leading  up  to  their  first  festival  season  featuring  appearances  at  Latitude,  The  Great  Escape,  Live  at  Leeds,  Standon  Calling  and  the  BBC  Biggest  Weekend.


“expansive  indie  songwriting  that  nods towards  Massive  Attack  or  Portishead.”  –  Clash  Magazine
