Just seven days and almost 200,000 SoundCloud plays – it’s not unusual for indie electronic boys Panama. It doesn’t surprise us either. ‘Strange Feeling’ features soft vocals from Jarrah McCleary that send you high above the clouds; enter the bongos and flute – these boys will have you shimmying wherever you need to go. Saving the best for last, Panama wind up the track with a mesmerising sax solo (I know you didn’t see that coming). It’s so damn saxy, it’s hotter than the hotcakes your girlfriend made you for breakfast.
Those in the US are lucky to receive ‘Strange Feeling’ as a bonus track from their debut EP “Always” and will be graced with the presence of Panama at SXSW this month. With such a unique sound, the boys should expect a warm welcome; we send them only good vibes!
With 88 Aussie acts set for SXSW 2014, we’ve highlighted a few you should keep track of including the talented Owl Eyes, Touch Sensitive and The Kite String Tangle.
Part of that crew will be young gun & Future Classic label mate Wave Racer, who expertly remixed Panama’s debut single ‘Always’. Pleasure your eardrums here.
