The Indie Discovery: Penny Police

Originally posted on The Indie Discovery - 12 September 2012

Penny Police is the alias of the 27-year-old Copenhagen based singer and songwriter Marie Fjeldsted. I've heard about this artists thanks to my favorite danish singer-songwriter Ida Gard.

Penny Police has a soft and angelic voice and also a unique music style characterized by her autoharp. I haven't heard the music of an autoharp before. The sound of this instrument is nice.

Penny Police has released her first EP "Thieves Like Us" in 2011. Her debut album "The Broken, The Beggar, The Thief" released in march 2012 has impressed the danish press. You can buy it on itunes or imusic.
"She has been praised for her alternative songwriting and ability to write songs that combine the advanced with the accessible. She likes it simple and honest, gives room for both vulnerability and strength and with a rare proximity in her songs she touches old as young. She writes with her heart, full of integrity and full of hit potential."
