Penguin Kings

Penguin Kings

 Brisbane, Queensland, AUS

Penguin Kings are originally from London, UK, and have taken Brisbane by storm with their sharp, catchy brand of Indie rock. Penguin Kings have developed a unique style over the years, and are without a doubt a band to watch over the coming months.


Since their earliest days in the UK, Penguin Kings have made quite an impact since moving themselves to the Queensland capital. The two brothers, Harry Ward and Rhys Hession, alongside cousin Lloyd Hancock have carefully crafted their own path to the forefront of the local Brisbane scene, delivering their raw, passionate blend of indie rock to a rapidly growing fan base.
2012 is sure to be a big year for the young trio, with single ‘Berlin Love’ released in early February, and a debut EP on the cards for a mid year release. Penguin kings are already beginning to attract attention nationally, selected to perform a number of showcases at Adelaide’s FUSE festival in late February, before heading off on a number of interstate shows to promote their new EP.
Penguin Kings are emerging as one of the bands to watch in Australia, and with the raw energy and glorious texture of their live show, it will be difficult to ignore ‘PK’ as they kickstart their whirlwind 2012.
