FREE MP3: Penguin Prison's best song yet
"I got a car that I call Jenny / I take her out when there’s too much noise in my head." It's hard not love a song with a chorus like that.
Penguin Prison has nailed it again. Recorded with Alex Frankel from the band Holy Ghost, The Worse It Gets is a kicky warm-weather anthem that Penguin Prison described to me as "a bit of Hall & Oates / Doobie Brothers, but somehow cool, if that makes sense." It does. This is a pure, melodic pop tune, but it still sounds like a cool intersection of pop and indie and it's available for free now...
Penguin Prison The Worse It Gets FREE MP3
The Worse It Gets is also for sale as a limited edition vinyl 7" single on Neon Gold Records. It's backed with the excellent Something I'm Not. Earlier single A Funny Thing is still available as well.
If you live in New York, you can see Penguin Prison live on April 8 at the Mercury Lounge. Tickets here.
