Video of the Day: Penrose “Better Man”

Penrose are a 5 piece band put together by Darragh Mc Grane and can now be described as a solid Indie Pop band with catchy uplifting indie songs and anthems that have “attitude” and stick in your head. Mixing the pop sensibilities & harmonies of The Beatles / ELO, the snarling vocals of Richard Ashcroft (The Verve) and the rhythmic acoustic guitars of Oasis. The band mixes their 60’s and 90’s influences bringing them together and putting a modern feel and attitude to the music they create. Penrose have just released “Better Man” with a single launch in Whelan’s November 18th. The video shot by Anthony White sees the band make some dubious life decisions and ultimately face the consequence of their actions.
