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.

Lead singer Darragh Mc Grane says he wrote the song “directly after a long night of being out till all hours and I had a realisation looking at my new born baby girl that I needed to sort myself out and be a better father to her.
