This week's Tune Of The Week is Penelope Trappes' Afraid, taken from her new Eel Trip EP - watch the atmospheric video above.

Aussie-born Trappes is one half of the celebrated Brighton-based electro duo The Golden Filter - her acclaimed solo albums Penelope One and Penelope Two have won her a devoted Irish fanbase. 

Afraid is a cover of the classic song by former Velvet Undeground singer and Andy Warhol muse Nico, infused with Trappes' unique dream pop sensibilities. "Nico's solo work addresses the more independent and mature aspects of her artistry that were suppressed during her years at The VU," explains Trappes. "'Afraid’ feels like a lullaby to herself and to her child for self love, self expression, and fearlessness."

The Eel Trip EP is out now. Find out more about Penelope Trappes here.
