The eponymous, four-song EP from the Glasgow-based singer-songwriter Penny Black (pictured above in a Kirsten Towill photo) can now be purchased for download on iTunes and Amazon.com in America. The tracks on the EP are “Green,” “Peter Pan’s Biggest Fan,” “Find Me,” and “Belong.” This EP is well worth a listen. All of the tracks are stellar.

In addition to the tracks on the EP, Penny has several additional songs posted on her MySpace page.

Penny was the subject of one of Powerline A.D.’s Sounds From Across The Pond Q&As last year.

Scottish Singer-Songwriter Penny Black Goes “Green” In New Video

Posted in British music, British rock, Music, Rock Music with tags , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2009 by John Curley

Glasgow-based singer-songwriter Penny Black (pictured above in a photo by Kirsten Towill), who was the subject of a Q&A for Powerline A.D.’s Sounds From Across The Pond feature in September, has released a video for her song “Green.” The video is quite visually arresting. It’s very colorful, and it uses numerous outfit changes and quick cuts. The song is about a girl who envies other girls for whom things just seem to come a bit too easily. Penny’s facial expressions in the clip are absolutely priceless.

The clip for “Green” was directed by Pete Fullarton and can be viewed below:

I was really impressed with this song and the video. I think that we’re going to be hearing and seeing a lot more of Penny Black in the future. Check out the music player on Penny’s MySpace page for some of her other songs.

Penny and her band will be playing at The Classic Grand on Jamaica Street in Glasgow on Saturday, December 5th. I wish that I could go to the show.

I always enjoy hearing about new bands and artists from people that I know. So when Rosie McClune of the Glasgow bands The Hedrons and GoGoBot suggested that I give a listen to a friend of hers named Penny Black, I followed the suggestion. And I’m glad that I did. Penny (pictured above in a photo by Kirsten Towill), who is 26 and a Glasgow native, is a very talented singer-songwriter. Penny has now done a Q&A with Powerline A.D. In the Q&A, Penny discusses her early songwriting efforts, attending a great gig by The Prodigy in Glasgow when she was underage, her musical inspirations, the music scene in Glasgow, and many other topics.
