Gogo Penguin at Gorilla
GoGo Penguin unveil music from new album A Hundrum Star (Blue Note Records), released 9 February 2018, alongside tracks from previous releases.
Noted for their hypnotic melodies, visceral bass-lines and tidal rhythm, Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music.
It’s music for the heart, head and feet and saw their album v2.0 (Gondwana records) named a Mercury Prize album of the year 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed to Blue Note Records and more recently they have been touring their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi.
