GoGo Penguin are a band from Manchester, UK, featuring pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner.
They are known for their skittering break-beats, infectious piano melodies, powerful and propulsive basslines, and anthemic riffs.
They compose and perform as a unit, there is no leader, instead each of them shares ideas and themes from each other. Their music defies the one label categorisation, incorporating elements of electronica, trip-hop, jazz, rock and classical music to carve out a unique sound that is wholly their own.
Their ‘acoustic electronica’ sound draws from a broad range of influences from Aphex Twin to Squarepusher,Massive Attack to Brian Eno,alongside modern classical composers such as Shostakovich and Debussy.
