Australian-born Brighton-based musician Penelope Trappes new album, Penelope Three, comes out on May 28th on Houndstooth. Penelope Three is the final installment in a trilogy of albums, following Penelope Two and Penelope One (and a few more dreampop-oriented EPs). Penelope completes her ambitious and other-worldly triptych with an album of healing, on which she looks to release herself from fear and into love, evoked in her signature ambient gothic dreamlands that are equal parts shoegaze pop and surrealist soundscapes.

Crucially, for this final part of the trilogy, Penelope has returned to focus on her voice, her first and original instrument. “The compositions are very driven by the vocals, because it is our primal instrument that can tell our story,” she says. Her singing is swaddled and haunted by brooding and atmospheric soundscapes, her poetic lyrics lifted by sounds sometimes light and hallucinatory, other times menacing and cavernous. Despite formal vocal training in opera and jazz when she was younger, it wasn’t until after her daughter was born that Penelope began writing her own music. Now in her 40s, she says coming into music later has been eye opening, and she laments the fact that women past 30 are too often discarded by the music industry: “Creativity doesn’t go away when you get older, it flourishes, changes, grows like all of life,” she says, “it amazes me that this is still something for society to wrap their heads around.” penelopetrappes.com

Plus Abi Wade + Dylan Henner

Abi wade: Abi Wade is a cellist, pianist and vocalist dedicated to exploring sound; developing unique playing & performance techniques through the use of prepared instrumentation, and incorporating new production techniques, sound design and location recording within her work. Poised between traditional songwriting and the neo-classical, her work crosses genres and pushes the traditional boundaries of her instruments.

Dylan Henner: Acclaimed UK experimental ambient musician Dylan Henner rejoins his first label Phantom Limb for brand new EP Amtracks, a beautifully hypnotic wordless loveletter to a train journey through rural Pennsylvania.
