#74 Penniless Cove – Monsoon Rain


Well this is a find and a half. Hailing from South East London, Penniless Cove may still be largely unknown on the folk circuit but that should change soon – preferably in the next 5 minutes – if this absolute gem of a track is how they mean to go on. Driven by Phoebe Osborne’s powerful, sultry jazz voice, ‘Monsoon Rain’ is a brilliantly-structured, endlessly catchy, quirk-folk number that swings, by jove. ¬†Fans of Tori Amos, Katy Carr and Abi Wade and anyone with ears will love it.
