“Sad Puppy” is out via Empty Streets Records / Because Music

Meet Huddersfield-based singer PENNY. She recently unveiled her great debut single, “Sad Puppy” – a lo-fi alt-pop track guided by soft arpeggio synths, kick drums, and haunting harmonies. The dreamy production complements her anthem of empowerment and realizing your self-worth.

“I wrote ‘Sad Puppy’ at a time when I’d finally realised I was worth more than how I’d been allowing people to treat me – a breakthrough moment. But I still felt so frustrated for ever allowing myself to be treated that way.”

She continues: “It’s all about allowing myself forgiveness after years of not knowing real self-love. I thought I wasn’t worthy of proper love, or respect, all because of the way I look. How absolutely crackers is that?! Not living up to what society classes as ‘attractive’ is sometimes hard work, but it’s not so bad after you realise it’s all a load of superficial, patriarchal bullshit, and you can be the sexy main character too.”

The song, along with the rest of PENNY’s debut EP (due out later this year) is produced by Will Serfass (aka WASSAILER), who also happened to be a member of her favorite band in high school the time: We Were Evergreen. Following a chance meeting at Tramlines Festival, they became Facebook friends. Will then discovered an early demo of “UR Girl’s Fine,” and created his own mix of the song. “It’s a dream come true,” says PENNY, “I went from fangirl to teammate, Will is still finding out all the weird stuff I used to do to go and watch them play live.” Follow PENNY on Instagram.
