Hot on the heels of their Mercury Prize 2014 nomination, and with their March 2015 Union Chapel show selling out in just a few weeks, GoGo Penguin announce their biggest yet headlining show at KOKO.

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.

Ticket holders can stay for Club NME for free after the show.

Please note this is an early show, the headliner will be on at approximately 8pm and curfew is 10pm. Times subject to change.

Tickets for this show are available from the box office at the venue at face value if you pay in cash. Please note promoters may increase ticket price if purchased on the night. Please note, you may be required to have your ID scanned at the front door. For more information, please click here.
