Los Angeles-based dance music producer and artist PENNYWILD has unveiled her sophomore EP, NIGHT PEOPLE, via Popgang Records.

The five-track house and techno EP serves as her love letter to underground nightlife, paying homage to drag, rave, and club culture. Each song contains vocal snippets that tell a humorous and engaging story of a rowdy night out featuring actors like Adwin Brown (Netflix’s You,) Emmy Mattingly Chucker (Disney’s Liv & Maddi,) and Sherry Cola (Freeform’s Good Trouble).

It’s as if you're there with PENNYWILD experiencing the fun right alongside her for the entirety of the EP, starting with its first track “GET READY,” a blissed-out disco-house number with vocal samples from a pregame. The conversation flows directly into the next tune “SIDE STREETS,” and as the group embarks on a rideshare to their destination, the beat becomes darker and more intense with pulsing bass and eerie synths.

Over a sexy and danceable house beat, the next track, “DOLLARS, DOLLS, DRUGS,” discusses proper etiquette at a drag show, narrated by NYC’s most influential faces of drag. Paralleling a night out with friends, after the show comes the “FOOD BREAK.” This chilled-out tune features jazzy horns, playful vocals, and a languid house beat.
