GoGo Penguin will be returning to KOKO after last year's sold out show.

The band's trademark skittering break-beats, telepathic interplay and a penchant for anthemic melody all contribute to a sound that’s wholly their own. GoGo Penguin's instrumentation might be the archetypal piano trio, but while the melodic, harmonic and structural ideas are influenced by both classical music and Jazz, the rhythms are drawn from left field electronica. It's this meeting of opposites that makes their unique acoustic-electronica sound so exciting and creates such an interesting and emotionally rich palate for the listener.

Drawing on a heady brew of influences, from Brian Eno, John Cage and Squarepusher to Manchester’s grey rain-streaked urban streets, they create a brave new sound all their own.

“Combining strong melodies with confident, powerful rhythm playing, GoGo Penguin creates exceptionally strong performances.” – All About Jazz
