Elementary Penguins

‘Safety first’ is how many young bands think of their second album. Afraid to lose their carefully acquired fan base thanks to a radical change, they often come up with a relatively riskless copy of their debut album. Nothing more, nothing less. But none of that for Amsterdam-based indie rockers The Elementary Penguins. The Charge of The Light Brigade, their sophomore album marks a giant artistic leap forward compared to their debut album Weekend Transition (2014). The band steers into a new direction confidently.
