“Window” (Chris Illingworth, Nick Blacka, Rob Turner) from the album « A Humdrum Star ».
“Different worlds have always collided in the sound of GoGo Penguin. The Manchester-based trio conjure richly atmospheric music that draws from their shared love of electronica, their grounding in classical conservatoires and jazz ensembles alongside indie bands, and a merging of acoustic and electronic techniques. Over the past few years, it has earned them rapturous responses all over the world –
The New York Times highlighted them as one of the 12 best bands at SXSW 2017 – and proved that they are just as at home playing to muddy festival goers as jazz fans. A Humdrum Star builds on the heady momentum of its acclaimed predecessors – the 2014 Mercury Prize-nominated V2.0 and their 2016 Blue Note debut Man Made Object – and transports it to new realms.”
