Penguin Prison is Chris Glover from New York, who first rose to prominence with a college band called "The Smartest People at Bard", whose demos came to the attention of Q-Tip and, through him, Interscope. A solo album for the Universal label followed in 2009 but it attracted scant attention, so in the same year Glover left, took up the new moniker and began gaining recognition with remixes, amongst others, for Goldfrapp, Marina & the Diamonds, Passion Pit.Read More...

- LyricsI saw you in a bad place acting like a freak
Went up to you after, will you come home with me?
I know what your thinking that ain't my concert
We can be together but your gonna have to learn
You fuck with my money oh, you'll be sorry, no no no
