Penelope Trappes‘s 4-track new EP, Eel Drip, is out October 23 on Houndstooth.
London based, Australian born vocalist, musician and ethereal sound designer Penelope Trappes has just announced the release of a new EP on Houndstooth. “‘Eel Drip’ is about honouring the dead, the passing of lives within you and beyond you,” she explained. “It’s about physical or emotional change, acknowledging fears, and being true to yourself… reaching your full potential.”
The majestic first single and title track, “Eel Drip,” combines celestial synth arpeggios and eerie vocals. It also comes with an intriguing Agnes Haus-directed video which was inspired by artist Francesca Woodman’s 1970s series of nude self-portraits with Eels.
About the video, Trappes added: “In the process of changing and shedding past notions of myself, there is another world between the past and the future. An eternal state, unknown, warped, slippery, free. Submitting to change, dying… being reborn.” Watch and pre-order the EP via Bandcamp below.
