“powered by fluttering, junglist drums, slithering bass lines and an increasing bank of Eno-esque digital manipulations. Hypnotic stuff.” (The Guardian)
Emotive, cinematic break-beat trio GoGo Penguin are back! playing music from their exhilarating new album Everything Is Going to Be OK (Out 14 April on Sony Records/XXIM), together with songs from their luminous back catalogue.
Bursting with the optimism of new beginnings, with a new drummer, a new record label and a subtly updated and developed sound, the band are ushering in a more sonically liberated era.
Everything Is Going to Be OK is born from a time of turbulence and loss. During a personally difficult period for the band, including deep personal loss and mourning, the studio offered the band a sanctuary from real life. The resulting project draws its strength from a shared understanding and empathy. Through our hardships, together, we will emerge stronger; everything is going to be ok.
“the taut synergy between racing, pulsing, frenetic percussion and looping leaping keyboard rollercoasters… draw listeners ever deeper into their dicey slipstream” (****Mojo)
