March 2, 2021 PENELOPE TRAPPES – NERVOUS
Penelope Trappes announces new album Penelope Three, the final chapter of her trilogy, that “is about healing the stories held in her body by surrendering to universal love”, coming in May on Houndstooth. Watch the dreamy and surreal video for first single “Nervous“, directed by Penelope + Agnes Haus. Penelope had this to say about it:
” In mid 2020 I began renting a strange and unique house in Brighton, but I couldn’t actually move into it for a month, so I used the odd space and time to film this video. It delves inside the mind of a nervous smoking woman, which takes the form of an oppressive strange house. Inside, she is confronting the balance between the masculine and feminine within her, which take the form of two spirit characters. Outside there are expansive but liminal moments of reprieve from the claustrophobia, but she invariably gets drawn back into the anxious loop of her own mental entrapment.”
Penelope Three is out May 28th on Houndstooth.
March 2, 2021 ERIKA DE CASIER – DRAMA
Erika De Casier follows up her period, melodrama inspired video for “No Butterflies, No Nothing“ with another dreamy and intimate self-directed video for the second single off her forthcoming new album coming soon on 4AD. Erika says of the vid: “I wanted to create a sort of evil twin or alter ego of myself because you’re not entirely yourself when you’re in the violence of your own emotions.”
