GoGo Penguin

12 Feb 2015

Making a welcome return to Brighton Festival, GoGo Penguin’s groove-heavy, lyrical acoustic-electronica sound has made them the band to watch on the UK’s contemporary jazz scene. The trio’s latest album, the Mercury-nominated v.2.0, features skittering breakbeats, telepathic interplay and a taste for anthemic melody. 

An exhilarating live act, GoGo Penguin draws on a heady brew of influences – from Aphex Twin to Shostakovich, Massive Attack to Manchester’s grey rain-streaked urban streets – to create a brave new sound of their own.
