Sydney-based singer-songwriter Penelope Pettigrew has released her autobiographical bisexual anthem, ‘Straight Until…’ the hazily entrancing feat of dance-pop allows the listener to explore their own identity in the presence of a voice that disrupts normative discourse and embraces queer culture.
Through seductively bold lyrics and bass-drenched synths, Penelope Pettigrew’s queer pop track carries some reminiscence to the likes of Peaches, yet, discernibly, there’s far more commercial potential to this radio-ready single. We can’t wait to see the rest of the world waking up to Pettigrew’s nuanced empowering style. Whatever subject she chooses for her lyricism, you know that she will delve deeper than most.
Straight Until… is now available to stream via Spotify.
