Leeds/ London based band Pengilly's new single, 'Toby's Hill', is the title track taken from their upcoming EP of the same name, which will be released in September, through their own label, Good Foot Records.
The video for 'Toby's Hill' was shot by Brown Bread Films and features the band rowing to shore, before hiking through moorland. The eerie nature of the video is perfectly suited to the song's haunting harmonies and melody.
Pengilly's were formed in 2009 in Leeds, with the line-up: Ric Hollingbery (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Violin); Lara Verney (Vocals, Violoncello); Imo Berman (Vocals, Viola); Georgie Jackman (Vocals, Violin); Jim O'Doherty (Bass) and Joe Pearson (Drums). Since their inception, Pengilly's have supported for the likes of 'The xx'; 'Wave Pictures'; 'Stornoway' and 'tUnE-YaRdS'. Ric Hollingberry has also contributed arrangements to albums by London singer songwriter Emmy the Great since 2007.
Pengilly's are continuing their live shows, up until the release of a new recording, which is due for release in 2012.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
