Saint Etienne have shared the second single and video from their upcoming album/film, I've Been Trying to Tell You. Based around a slowed-down sample of The Lightning Seeds' "Joy," "Penlop" casts an eerie, hypnotic, romantic mood with Sarah Cracknell repeating the line "I don't really know you, but I'd like to show you / just the town / we went all around."
"'Penlop' is one of my favorite songs on the album," says Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley. "Sarah's vocal makes me think of a travel guide, walking you around your half-remembered memories of the late nineties. Pete's production on this is wonderful, I like the way it bursts wide open at the end, like someone breaking through from the past into the present day.”
