London songwriter shares daring alt-folk outing
Penniless Cove is making waves in the alt-folk world with her unique brand of songwriting. Her off-kilter lyrics and vaguely discordant style have led to her previous albums Out on a Roof (2012) and Tipped like Titanic (2016) picking up support from 6Music, Folk & Honey and Radio 4. She’s also performed on Radio 4’sinfluential show “Loose Ends.”
A music obsessive from a young age, she studied a variety of instruments growing up in rural Pembrokeshire. She was a regular on the Welsh live music circuit before making the move to the capital.
Her new single “Too Tight” is exactly as dark and leftfield as you can expect to hear from Penniless Cove. Lyrically out there, the production is haunting and unique. Listen below.
