Penelope Trappes – Nervous
Penelope Trappes shares the first single from her new album Penelope Three, the final chapter of her trilogy "that addresses the cycles of birth, life and death", coming May 28th on crystal clear vinyl via Houndstooth. Penelope says of the surreal, dreamlike video, which she directed with Agnes Haus:
"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."
