GoGo Penguin have been hailed as the “Radiohead of British Jazz”, but they draw equally on rock, jazz and minimalist influences, alongside the intricacy of Aphex Twin or Four Tet to create their punchy, experimental, but always beautiful music.

Their EP, Ocean in a Drop (Music for Film) was released in October 2019 and their new album GoGo Penguin will be released on 5th June 2020.
