[PREMIERE] Penguin – Fiction

Newcastle-upon-Tyne newcomers Penguin caused something of a splash with their debut single, Not A Problem. The well received track garnering radio play from the likes of Huw Stephens and 6 Music. Today, ahead of its release next week, we’re delighted to premiere their second single, Fiction.


Building on a bombastic lead riff, and clattering crescendo of drums, Fiction has a touch of the playful rhythms of fellow North-Easteners Field Music merged with the big riffs of EAT FAST and the playful pop of the Super Furry Animals. It’s three-minutes of relentless, fast-paced alt-pop, followed by a delightfully exuberant, Beta Band like breakdown. We find it hard to not listen to Penguin without a delirious grin emerging on our faces, and who doesn’t need that sometimes?

Fiction is out July 21st. Click HERE for more information on Penguin.
