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.

the concept is pretentious and tenuous, and associates the album with a figure who undermines its message. In its attempt to legitimize itself with a literary classic, In Death's Dream Kingdom forgets something important. This is dark music for dark times, sure, but the music can speak for itself, and in a much more intuitive language. roel funcken
Hooked from the very start of A1. An incredible concept executed in the best way imaginable, and it’s gonna be talked about for decades. Every track leaves me with a sickening feeling of bleakness, but I can’t stop listening. It evokes an absurd amount of thoughts and emotions without a single word spoken. jek
An absorbing collection of ethereal drone, ambient and melancholy music. This album takes me back to my 16 year old self discovering This Mortal Coil for the first time. The Becoming Animal and Fovea Hex reworkings fill me with a musical sadness that’s so pure and life affirming. Thank you for releasing this collection. Kyle Storm
