The Shacklewell Arms, 71 Shacklewell Ln, E8 2EB London

We're delighted to bring our best pals in Penelope Isles back to London for a show at Dalston fave The Shacklewell Arms, this time with new mates The Mantis Opera and Lingua Nada all the way from Germany!

Penelope Isles
Hailing from the Isle of Man, Penelope Isles is the sounds of Jack and Lily Wolter, with the help of friends Becky Redford and Jack Sowton. Currently based between Brighton and Cornwall, the band perform melodic fuzz pop with dynamics that will transfix and satisfy. Hypnotic, chiming bedroom pop music. For the lovers of Radiohead, The Magic Numbers and Deerhunter.

Their set is the wide-eyed optimism of youth with a knack for great pop hooks which they smear with psych fuzz, similar to the likes of Cheatahs, or Moon King. Their tracks are like your favourite sweets with shards of broken glass embedded in them, the potential of which is just screaming out for attention.
