Electric Penguins present their tribute to the gathering of athletes from all over the world for the London 2012 Olympic Games. This song is called Highgate Hill and it is dedicated to London and heroes worldwide.
Check out Simon Raymonde’s ‘Beneath The Surface’ show on StrangewaysRadio.com tonight at 6pm where the Cocteau Twins member and Bella Union label boss will feature Electric Penguins.
“Beneath The Surface is a trawl through Simon’s out of control record collection, and a sharp reminder of how much incredible music exists that most people simply never even hear about.”
So shall it be tweeted, so shall it be done….
Channel4 / Bobcom “Sounds From The Cities” featuring music by Electric Penguins.
Dublin based electro folk duo Electric Penguins have scored a UK theme tune on Channel4. The band who released their album “II” late last year have composed, arranged and recorded the theme tune and additional music for “Sounds From The Cities”, a series of four music programmes hosted by “Gavin and Stacey” star Mat Horne and featuring live performances byImelda May, Gruff Rhys, KT Tunstall, The Joy Formidable and others.
The series is brought to Channel 4 by BOBCOM.com, a pioneering new independent music website which gives unsigned artists the chance to sell their music direct online and win support slots on “Sounds From The Cities” and the chance to record in Abbey Road.
Electric Penguins release their new single “19 Winters” on Friday 25th February.
“Sounds From The Cities” continues on Channel4, Wednesday 23rd February at midnight.
