#mondaymotivation doused in catchy guitar riffs
Why You Should Care:
Chris Glover has been one of the most reliably fun musicians to grace the synth-pop landscape in the last few years. In the time since his 2015 sophomore album Lost in New York, he’s been DJing venues all over and putting out remixes for artists like Freedom Fry, A R I Z O N A, and DC-area band Broke Royals. But he’s also recently put out the four-song EP Turn It Up. The title track is quintessential Penguin Prison - there are four-on-the-floor drums, and poppy guitar riffs abound - but it’s also one of positive reinforcement, encouraging you to push through regardless of the obstacles.
A song with a message like this needs a heartwarming video to match. Directors Ben Fries and Alden Nusser to create a mockumentary music video starring a rollerblade-dancing chiropractor and a bodybuilder who had an encounter with one another that changed both of their lives. The dance moves aren’t half-bad, and you might walk away feeling a bit inspired to don a pair of rollerblades yourself.
Penguin Prison will be playing in DC tomorrow night at Black Cat. Tickets are still available for $20 ($25 at doors).
