GoGo Penguin

Whistlers Green

Currently one of the most in demand bands in British jazz with sold out shows across the world. Their v2.0 album, ended up on the Mercury shortlist and their last album Man Made Object was the band’s first recording in a prestigious three-album deal with Blue Note, the most famous jazz label on earth. It’s a signing that was triggered when Blue Note president Don Was heard v2.0. Just two days later he was in Hamburg to see the band play a barn-storming set at Über Jazz and everything flowed from there.

Although they're an acoustic band, GoGo Penguin’s music draws from many areas of contemporary electronic music, one where you can hear arcade game bleeps, glitchy breakbeats, hypnotic Aphex-style melodies, grinding basslines and a rumbling low-end. It has been described as “acoustic electronica”, which perfectly sums up the writing process.
