With comparisons to bands including Bloc Party, Acoustic Ladyland, Foals and Interpol, Panda Party’s music is packed with more ideas than James Dyson’s briefcase. Having made music together since they met at university, the 5-piece have developed their own style which sits somewhere between inventiveness and awkwardness. The band have written songs with anthem-friendly subject matter ranging from Nelson Mandela’s incarceration to surfing in Newquay in the midst of hailstorms.
‘Arnold Strong’ is the latest single from Panda Party, released on 27 June 2015 at Zigfrid von Underbelly in Hoxton. The band are currently gigging in support of the release as well as writing new material.
“PANDA PARTY – Defiance! Protect Me http://mysp.ac/c6fJrT LDN band bursting w.ideas. Passionate writing, tight playing: utterly compelling…” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
“A fantastic new band… definitely one to watch in the future, absolutely love that track” Mark Ryan, Amazing Radio
“Such complex interplay. The music leaps and frolics, coiling and curdling; the lyrics gaze at the navel – part introspection, part narcissism, partly trying not to giggle along with the glee-filled tune.” ANewBandADay.com
