Brantford, Ontario’s The Penske File has released a brand new single entitled “Chorus Girl.” The anthemic pop rock/punk band has also crafted up a little music video to go along with the release. In addition, the trio has announced that they will be releasing a new full-length album, Half Glow, on July 21st via Stomp Records. The album was recorded at Drive Studios in Toronto and is a culmination of over half a lifetime of musical collaboration between the band members and childhood friends.
The video was directed and edited by Victor Wiercioch and is set in a suburban home where a young woman returns to clear out some of her father’s possessions after his passing. Meanwhile, the band belts out the undeniably catchy tune with big hooks and anthemic refrains.
Guitarist and vocalist Travis Miles explains:
“The video for ‘Chorus Girl’ explores the interconnectivity of music and memory, and how the interplay between such forces holds the power to turn grief into celebration.”
Drummer and vocalist Alexander Standen goes on:
“’Chorus Girl’ is a love song. I wrote it on the back bench of the van at the end of a long tour. For the first time in a long time I was super psyched to return home. My, then, new partner and I had made a tradition of going up north to her family’s cottage after every tour for a week of refuge. Stocked in the place were a million CDs that we would crank up throughout our time together there. The song is about anticipation, it’s about love; it’s also about music and shared experience.”
