Following her acclaimed debut album ‘Penelope One’ for Optimo Music in 2017 and ahead of sophomore long player ‘Penelope Two’ on Houndstooth, London based antipodean vocalist, musician and soundscaper Penelope Trappes releases a limited edition 7” vinyl of the intimate and spectral, ‘Carry Me'.
Despite its dark and dramatic funereal march, lyrically ‘Carry Me’ is positive, exploring a subliminal knowingness that love is the only guide through a chaotic and sometimes painful life. A key influence on Trappes is former Wire front-man and acclaimed solo artist Colin Newman. On the B-side, she slows his ‘I Can Hear Your…’ down, reinventing it as tender-ambient-gothic-romanticism.
Included exclusively with the 7”, is a CD featuring ‘Carry Me’ modified by Serbian enigma Abul Mogard into a taught and purposeful 13-minute drone masterwork, that despite its beat-less nature is full of tension and excitement
