    Last Friday, UK trio GoGo Penguin released a new EP, Ocean in a Drop (Music for Film).

    The new EP, whose title is inspired by a quote from the 13th century poet Rumi, consists of five re-recorded pieces from their 2017 live soundtrack for Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 cult documentary, Koyaanisqatsi.

    “People kept asking if we’d release the music as an album, but that didn’t feel right to us,” pianist Chris Illingworth explains in a press release. “The film has a great score already, but we really enjoyed the project and specifically writing music for film, so that provided the inspiration for Ocean in a Drop.”

    GoGo Penguin previously released the album A Humdrum Star in 2018. Stream their new EP here:
