GOGO Penguin

GoGo Penguin have been internationally hailed as electrifying live performers, innovative soundtrack composers, and as a collective who channel electronic and club culture atmospheres alongside minimalist, jazz and rock influences to create music that pulses and flows from the dancefloor to meditative inner-worlds, transporting us into brand new realms.

Their new single, Ascent, is their first for the new label XXIM Records and takes its inspiration from the duality often found in the big events in our lives; moments which can simultaneously make us feel both loved and isolated, fearful but confident, proud and humbled. Ascent expresses the journey through these experiences in life, moving forward into the unknown, but with hope not fear. It also marks the debut of the band’s latest member, drummer Jon Scott, who brings his own uniquely propulsive style to the Manchester based trio’s exhilarating music.
