The Weekly Groove: Penguin’s Invasion

 

This track is so weird, but that’s just why I love it. And yes, it’s actually about alien penguin’s invading earth. Don’t believe me? Listen for yourself. It’s this kind of weird psychedelia that makes italo-disco so distinct from it’s American counterpart. Sometimes the wackiness works. Sometimes it came off underproduced and cheesy. On this track it works brilliantly. The melodramatic vocals, and the synths imitating orchestral strings make give the track a flair that doesn’t take itself seriously. Go ahead and give it a listen.
