Penguin Party is the new project from Dave Milligan of critics’ favourites Arco
(4 stars, Q Magazine; Glowing write-ups in the Guardian, NME, Melody Maker, and dozens more)
A collection of immediate, accessible, spangly songs with lyrics embracing everyday subjects like temptation, betrayal and mental illness.
"Highly tuneful and charming, with just the right air of quirkiness to rank it as one of the better nostalgically-flavoured records of recent times"
- Leonard's Lair
"...cooler than a real penguin’s party…more quintessentially British than fish and chips...quirky and individualistic...engagingly charming…memorably tuneful...literally reels you in…lurking within the album are cleverly constructed lyrics about all manner of human experiences…"
- Jeff Perkins, Blogcritics Magazine
"A cool, engaging release – it has a hypnotic quality that pulls you in.”
- Not Lame
"Very catchy, very charming…EXCELLENT"
- Kool Kat Musik
"… nostalgic music hall pop…compelling listen…reminds me of Andy Partridge…best fun here is pub anthem "Goin' Back To Grandma's" with the hummable chorus and foot stompin' beat…a lot of subtle shifts in mood and genre "
"..sticky hooks, quirky arrangements (you’ll be singing these songs in the shower)..like the best pop..governments definitely won’t fall, but sun-drenched drives in the country, with the windows down, will be enhanced"
- Leicester Bangs
"..beautifully and sensitively crafted...poetic lyrics...refreshingly individualistic…thought provoking and evocative...strange but nicely rewarding...well conceived, superbly written and beautifully performed…an enjoyable and fascinating work"
- Toxic Pete
"..stylistic pop-rock tunes..varied influences and genre-hopping arrangements..snappy electric guitar bursts.."
- Delusions Of Adequacy
"Warning. Just like all well written pop you will find yourself singing these songs at highly inappropriate moments."
