Info for Everything Is Going to Be OK
Former Mercury Prize nominated break beat/minimalist trio return with a new full length album. Bursting with the optimism of new beginnings (a new drummer/new record label/subtly updated and developed sound) the band are ushering in a more ambient era. 'Everything Is Going to Be OK' is born from a time of turbulence and loss.
"The entire album comes across as a comfort. As the trio found “sanctuary” in their studio, they invite listeners to find the same in their grooves. The new drummer is an excellent fit, and the interplay remains instinctive, on the border of improvisation, especially on “We May Not Stay.” The entire set tilts toward fourth single “Parasite,” whose TENTACLE-directed video bears the influence of “Koyaanisqatsi,” the classic film the trio re-scored eight years back. People bustle; landscapes change; the line between reality and technology is blurred. The population and pace increase. A woman covers both her ears. But GoGo Penguin doesn’t end here; they close instead with the respite of “Sanctuary.” Perhaps everything really is going to be OK." (Richard Allen, acloserlisten.com)
Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalism, game soundtracks and glitchy-electronica to create their unique music. Their album v2.0 (Gondwana Records) was named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year in 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. In 2015 they signed a three album deal with Blue Note Records (France) and released the debut Blue Note album Man Made Object in 2016. More recently they have been touring their own unique score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film Koyaanisqatsi.
