Penguin Prison came all the way from New York City and delivered a performance at Neumos in Seattle Tuesday night that got everyone dancing to their indie-electronica sound. What’s indie-electronica, you ask? It sounds like disco from the 70’s, mixed with dance beats from the 80’s and topped off with a pop music from the 90’s. It’s hard to define but it will most definitely put you in a good mood.

Chris Glover the lead singer and guitarist behind Penguin Prison took the stage a little after 10PM and instantly connected with the crowd. He’s a lot of fun to watch and his music resonated with everyone – he got the crowd clapping to the beat from the very first song in his set. There’s an almost addictive sound to his songs and you’ll find it difficult to get his catchy tunes out of your head (even when you hear them live). Think about the 70’s songs that were huge hits (i.e. Patrick Hernandez’s “Born To Be Alive”) made with a fresh take and you’ll understand exactly what I mean.

Two songs in particular that the crowd seed to enjoy were “Hollywood” and “Don’t Fuck With My Money”.
