Wildcard (week 38):
Penfriend – The Only Way Out Is Through

Penfriend is the solo project of Bristolโ€™s Laura Kidd. Sheโ€™s not only an upcoming artist, but also a successful podcast maker. In the first series of her podcast Attention Engineer, she interviewed guests like Bellyโ€™s Tanya Donelly, Frank Turner, Charlotte Hatherley, Public Service Broadcasting, and Tom Robinson. It shot to #10 in the Appleย Podcastsย top music shows on launch. Series 2 will launch on 7 October.

Following Everything Looks Normal In The Sunshine, The Only Way Out Is Through is only Penfriendโ€™s second release. Sonically, her new single is a nod to the powerpop that ruled the airwaves in the early 1990s. Its grungy guitars give it a rock touch, but itโ€™s sugar-coated by an icy synth melody. Lyrically, Penfriend delivers the message of hope and determination that we all need after a tough six months.

She says: โ€œThe choice to release music in a universally dark time isnโ€™t one I take lightly. The Only Way Out Is Through is the most resonant and useful song I have to offer right now, a rescue raft for whoever needs one. Thatโ€™s what this song is for me.โ€

The Only Way Out Is Through by Penfriend is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard!

In the Wildcards 2020 playlist youโ€™ll find all of this yearโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcards so far.
