Penelope Antena presents "20 Down", her first release with Brooklyn-based record label Youngbloods. Composed during self-isolation, “20 Down” is a simple and sincere wish for embracing the warmth of normalcy.

"I wrote 20 Down while quarantined in the countryside of Southern France. Naturally, in isolation my thoughts have wandered toward friends, family, and those I’ve missed over the last few months. Feeling helpless thinking of them stuck in the city, I felt compelled to write this song as an open love letter: an invitation into my heart, hopes, fears, and a reminder of reunions to look forward to.”


(I’ll simply pray)

This place is a safe heaven
Come lay down in my garden
I love you
I miss you
This place is a safe heaven
I’ll leave the door open for you
I miss you

This place is a safe heaven
Don’t stand there heart broken
I love you
Come through

We’ll see each other when the lights come back
We’ll see each other when the lights come back
(I’ll simply pray)
All I can do is pray

This place is a safe heaven
Give me your burden
I’ll carry it too
I love you
This place is a safe heaven
I’m standing just a few feet away
Tell me you’ll find the way

(I’ll simply pray)
This place is a safe

Her 2019 self-produced LP ‘Antelope’ has done just that, and has put her on the map as a visionary song-writer, producer, and creative force. ... more
