"It’s so lush, and gorgeous and original and fresh and heartfelt, that it just blew us away." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.

Biography

Pengilly’s is the project of young Ric Hollingbery and his band. A six piece who mix orchestral arrangements with beats, shouts, choral phrases and processed sounds; playing live with strings, laptop, bass and drums.

Pengilly's recently released their debut single 'Ode VIII' on Good Foot Records. With 250+ in attendance at The Brudenell Social Club, (Leeds) single launch party, the song has gone on to be championed by the likes of respected BBC 6 Music DJ Tom Robinson, and has received several national radio plays to date. This is what has been said about it:

"It’s so lush, and gorgeous and original and fresh and heartfelt, that it just blew us away." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.

'With all the music that crosses my ears these days, it’s indeed a rarity to hear such a lovely, richly produced, yet seemingly unpretentious song." - A PILE OF LO-FI!

"This song showcases a band that can play their instruments infinitely more competently than most of us could ever dream of ... Ode VIII is and enrapturing phonic experience to both admire and explore." - Muso's Guide

In recent performances, Pengilly's have played Mumford & Sons/Cherbourg curated Communion (Notting Hill), Proud (Camden), Ronnie Scott's (Soho), and supported Lupen Crook at Lennons (Southampton). Pengilly’s have also supported Emmy the Great, The XX, Cherbourg, The Wave Pictures, Stornoway and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. Ric has released an album with Emmy the Great, and is part of her live band. He has also collaborated with Jeremy Warmsley (of Summer Camp), and recorded for Corrine Bailey-Rae.
