Until The Tide Creeps In

Penelope Isles generate warm, paternal feelings in me. I want to like them. Not so much because they sometimes remind me of previous favourite The Drink (minus noodling, plus melodies and sunshine). It's more do to with their straightforwardness and a timeless non-coolness.

They make music they would like to listen to themselves. I wouldn't call it naive, but let's say it relies more on intuition than brains. Thank god!

All in all I think I have succeeded in liking them. Of course they could have been a new favourite. They're not, but I still look forward to seeing them live in a couple of days.
