Honoring their confusing name, contradiction has become the trademark of this up and coming band from Holland.
To create a sound of their own the seven-piece band skillfully demolished the walls between hip hop, jazz, funk, rock and reggae music. Sultry like a warm summer at times; but always pumping, roaring, and exuberant when performed live on stage.
Destructive Penguins' debut Walkin' EP released independently in February 2016 after a successful crowdfunding campaign, mainly showcased the band's live reputation and was well received among fans in Holland with plenty shows countrywide as a result. Their latest release High / Low EP (February 2017) has been produced with the help of Oscar de Jong (Kraak & Smaak) and reveals a more mature sound with deeper lyrics and smarter arrangements. High/Low definitely underlines the potential and ambition of this young band.
On October 1st 2018, Destructive Penguins released their first stand-alone single Painting Pictures. They took it to themselves to further improve their production and defining their sound. Painting Pictures is the first result of this sonic identity and combines Destructive Penguins' signature reggae and hiphop vibe. Their newest single Time Traveler (April 2019) showcases the band's ability to combine hiphop with some fresh R&B sounds. Whatever will be next, it will be infused with summer vibes and add to the band's mission to share energy, love and fun.
