"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. Their new album, A Humdrum Star released on February 9, 2018."
