Default Penelope Trappes @ Plugd (Roundy)SAT 27th April

Australian artist and songwriter PENELOPE TRAPPES comes to play Plugd, Cork on Saturday, 27th April. She has recently supported Sharon Van Etten on her European tour as part of her band The Golden Filter.

Tix only 10 euro:

Special guest: Roslyn Steer (Morning Veils)

Following her debut album ‘Penelope One’ for Optimo Music, antipodean vocalist, musician and soundscaper Penelope Trappes presents sophomore longplayer ‘Penelope Two’, for Houndstooth. Earlier this month, 'Penelope Two' gets the remix treatment from the likes of Mogwai, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Poppy Ackroyd.

Elements from multiple sources are subsumed by Trappes’ sonic presence; one hears Badalamenti and Julee Cruise’s work for ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Twin Peaks’, Slowdive’s dreampop, the scorched comedowns of early Primal Scream, Colin Newman’s dark melancholia, plus contemporaries like Tropic Of Cancer and Sky H1.

These distilled, rarefied creations take echoes as their starting point, with Trappes summoning swathes of tones, textures and emotions into something ethereal but also powerful, like an evocation of spirits. It’s also deeply melodic, with her intimate, maternally-tender voice floating in the middle of each three dimensional, womb-like sonic space.

Originally from the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia before moving to New York and developing experimental electronic projects Locke and Priscilla Sharp, plus her best-known incarnation with partner Stephen –The Golden Filter.


“Referencing Scott Walker and This Mortal Coil, Trappes uses a minimal palette to frame her spellbinding, spectral songs in a starkly beautiful sound, suggesting a collaboration between Mazzy Star and Leyland Kirby, or Felicia Atkinson writing for Lynch. Truly remarkable” BOOMKAT

“A shiver inducing introspective work, drawing influence from Nick Cave and Grouper” The FADER

“Sounds like Scott Walker collaborating with Julee Cruise” FACT Magazine
