Belgian Singer and producer Penelope Antena, truly is a one of a kind, multifaceted artist. From her Lo-Fi sounding EP ‘Down the Habit Hole “, to her soul infused duo “Honey Drips” with Swiss producer Deheb, to the fragile and tormented melodies of “33-1 Oak” (her first single out on the new Parisian label KowTow Records). Penelope can proudly say she takes from her mother Isabelle Antena when it comes to cross musical genre .
Though the common thread between all the worlds she cleverly navigates, would definitely be her vocals. Experimenting instinctively with different techniques, Antena uses her voice as a harmonic lab of emotions. Sometimes intimate, sometimes haunted. Always Original.
Her first LP Antelope - entirely self-produced - comes as proof that the music she makes changes and evolves to perfectly match her personal story.
After a painful heartache, Antena settles alone in her parents house, lost in the woods somewhere in the south of France.
Surrounded by her grand father’s instrument (Marc Moulin- great Belgian composer from the 70’s ) she writes this 10 track album field with melancholia and broken love.
Like on the branches of the Cedars around her house, It’s a folky electronic breeze that hallows onto this record.
New sound, same familiar feeling when listening to Antena (be it Mother or Daughter) : acoustic and electronic have rarely been so intertwined, beautifully combined.
The Making of Antelope
ANTELOPE is Penelope Antena’s first full length album. Recorded in The Cedars Studio (France) it took Antena a year to write and create this body of work.
Alone, surrounded by Cedar Trees, and her parents instruments, she produced and mixed this Folk/Electronic infused 10 track album.
FRAME Pictures, bared witness of her atypical journey through their cinematographic take on what this creative process felt lik.
