While 2017 left many of us speechless, Christopher Glover of Penguin Prison is speaking louder than ever. His forthcoming EP Turn It Up— from which we’ve already heard the titular lead single and its remixes—works with heavier messages than some of his previous work. That said, the EP still contains the DJ and producer’s signature sound: a blended cocktail of speedy guitar licks, bouncy pop melodies, disco-tinged percussion, sweet and sour vocal manipulation and upbeat bass, all molded into a cohesively sunny yet sophisticated addition to his repertoire.
Glover’s new EP carefully treads the fine line between stylistic uniformity with his previous material and fresh yet subtle innovation. “I wanted the new songs to be an evolution in sound while still maintaining consistency from my previous releases,” he mentions. “I feel, from playing these songs live with my band, that they seem more emotive and immediate than the previous material I have released as Penguin Prison.”
When it comes to live performances in 2018, Glover will continue to push his shows’ boundaries. “I am trying to bridge the gap between the DJ world and the live band world,” he says. This is because, unlike many other electronic artists, Glover can perform either alone or with others.
Turn It Up will be available as of February 9th via Act Normal Music.
