Gogo Penguin

Based in Manchester, Gogo Penguin are a leftfield piano trio made up of 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 glitchy-electronica to create their unique and spellbinding sound. In September 2014, v2.0 was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize Album of the Year.
