Edward Penfold’s music is a blend of the old and the new, nostalgic but not dated. More than anything it sounds like now. It’s music from the heart, a hazy collection of sounds and moods – sometimes upbeat, sometimes down but always genuine and always captivating. His lyricism reflects the eloquence and observation of a very English sort of poetry, seeing the depth in the shallows of life, the profundity in the mundane. All accepted with a matter-of-factness that is reflected in the driving impetus in every song, whether slow or fast or groovy.
We featured two of his songs on their compilation Vegetarian Meat. One of those tracks ‘Sunny Day’ was premiered on Crack Magazines website. His album CAULKHEAD came out on March 18th 2016. Edward Penfold is also a member of experimental psych and garage trio Taos Humm who have a record coming out later in 2016.
