Emotive, break-beat minimalist trio GoGo Penguin are back, with their brand new album Everything Is Going to Be OK. Bursting with the optimism of new beginnings, with a new drummer, their new record label, (Sony Records' electronica and classical imprint XXIM Records), and a subtly updated and developed sound, the band are ushering in a more ambient era.
Everything Is Going to Be OK is born from a time of turbulence and loss. During an oppressive grieving period, the studio offered the band a sanctuary from real life. The resulting project, given such vibrant life here, draws its strength from a shared understanding and empathy. New song "Glimmerings" introduces this fresh realm, with GoGo Penguin probing the sub-conscious, the imagination, and the creative process itself.
The title links to a work by British Professor Anil Seth, and it's a moving, gently euphoric experience. GoGo Penguin's Nick Blacka explains:
"'Glimmerings' was one of the first tunes that we began to work on when preparing ideas for a new album. The word glimmerings stood out when I was reading a book by Anil Seth called Being You. The book is about the science of consciousness and in the Prologue, he talks about how ‘glimmerings of ideas began to emerge.' It felt like the perfect way to describe the process of thought and creativity."
Life has many great aspects to it and despite the lows, we should be mindful and grateful to celebrate the highs at every turn. Through our hardships, we will emerge stronger — everything is going to be ok. 12" transparent clear vinyl with an additional 7" transparent vinyl.
