About Penguin Prison
Penguin Prison is an electro-pop act from New York that made its commercial recording debut in 2009 in association with Neon Gold Records. Comprised of Chris Glover, a producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist, Penguin Prison is often compared to contemporary electro-pop acts such as Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, and Miike Snow. Glover made his commercial recording debut as Penguin Prison with the Animal Animal/A Funny Thing EP in 2009 on Neon Gold Records. Another double-sided single, The Worse It Gets/Something I’m Not, followed on the label in 2010. A self-titled debut album arrived in 2011 on Downtown Records. In addition to his production output, Glover made a name for himself as Penguin Prison with a bunch of remixes for the likes of Marina & the Diamonds (“I Am Not a Robot”), Sebastien Tellier (“Fingers of Steel”), Goldfrapp (“Rocket”), Erik Hassle (“Hurtful”), and others. As a live act, Penguin Prison is a trio comprised of Conrad Stern-Ascher on synthesizers and Ernesto Karolys on drums, in addition to Glover on vocals and guitar.
