Jack Penate: Dark But Danceable

After the release of his debut album (Matinee) in 2007, Jack Penatewas quickly dubbed one of Britain's brightest young pop talents. Reaching No. 1 on the U.K. Indie Albums chart and No. 7 on the U.K. Albums chart, Matinee exhibited a remarkable sense of passion in its songwriting.

On his sophomore album, Everything Is New, Penate exudes a refreshing sense of insight and experimentation. While the music has a gloomy undercurrent, each track is still fun and dance-floor-friendly, colorfully blending classic soul and pop with hints of Afrobeat.
