Penguins Kill Polar Bears - Dawn EP

Linlithgow glacial-rockers Penguins Kill Polar Bears may not have the most factually accurate band name, but what they do have, is one of the best debut EPs I've heard this year. Combining elements of fellow Scots The Twilight Sad and We Were Promised Jetpacks, the "Dawn EP" is breathtaking at times! None more so than on closing track "Valley".

If you're a fan, then the EP hits the shelves on the 19th June. You can pre-order it here and over on their bandcamp page they have a free download of new song "Wish With Worry" to tide you over. It's pretty good too!
