Penniless Cove is a Welsh, London-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She takes inspiration from artists as Ibeyi, Joanna Newsome, Lianne Le Havas & Ivor Cutler. She announced the release of a new album which should be out in 2020. We don’t have further information right now.

Today we have the pleasure to premiere a new track titled “River Lea” which shows her warm and soulful vocals, the refined and the essential lines which “explode” in a full, melodic sound. It’s impressive the care and the complexity of instrumental parts. On the new single she states:

Muddy wellies, plastic champagne glasses and howling winds create a romantic setting for a love song. But the champagne tastes guilty and the absence of chemistry creates a bittersweet sinking by the banks. I worked with the producer to create a dynamic switch from raw, stripped down vocals and tenor uke, to a thick orchestrated chorus to tell my story.
