Packing the dance floors with an infectious combination of frenetic break-beats, irresistible piano melodies and subtle electronica, GoGo Penguin first came to prominence in 2014 after their album, v2.0, was named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year in 2014, alongside offerings from the likes of Damon Albarn.

“A stirring re-evaluation of what a piano trio should sound like in the 21st century.” BARCLAYCARD MERCURY PRIZE
