Penny X – back to your dad’s
Berlin based PENNY X is a young Alternative-Pop artist that has defined herself as straightforward with her story-telling and lyrics. Her sound is built by a mixture of electronic and organic elements that simultaneously showcase her versatile voice: A vocalist who’s range varies from belting to whispering in one song, PENNY X writes her songs like short stories. After releasing her first singles in 2022, which already displayed different facets of her music, the singer now shows a louder and darker side to a Riot Grrrl interpretation with her new single ‘back to your dad’s’ likened to Olivia Rodrigo, Tate McRae, GAYLE and Maggie Lindemann.
The product of a songwriting session with producer Freddy Rochow, ‘back to your dad’s’ is a revenge song that came from jamming with some aggressive guitar chords. PENNY X writes:
“I’m not an angry person at all, but at that moment I had to think of how my ex had just posted these cute couple pics and even moved in with his new girlfriend – something he would’ve never done with me. Seeing him treating her so much better than he ever treated me made me really mad and then it felt like the song just started writing itself”.
With no song sounding alike, PENNY X has proven she is not just a singer, but she’s a songwriter and musician through and through. A newcomer who started writing songs at the age of 12, the multiinstrumentalist went on to spend multiple months working with different Recording Studios in Nashville and Chicago. Such experiences aided her work on her music, which has significantly shaped her artistry today. PENNY X can’t be just one thing, that’s what the X in her name stands for – A concept she will also follow on her Debut EP, out in February 2023.
