Coming from the mythical lands of Denmark & California, Moon Panda will gently launch you into the electric currents that govern deep space, with walls of synth wrapped around catchy grooves and guitar hooks that lull you into a soothing sound space of escapism. The duo's debut EP 'Pastel Pool' was self-released in 2019, packed with dreamy guitar pop hits including the singles 'Rabbit' and 'Gun'. In 2020 the band signed to legendary British label Fierce Panda for their second EP 'Make Well', the release again earned critical acclaim for it's luscious, blissed out vibes which float across grooving bass lines with BBC 6 Music's Lauren Laverne declaring 'Slow Drive' her 'favourite track of the year so far...top of the pile for me.' As the love from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and radio stations across the globe grew Moon Panda realised they were accidentally indulging in a spot of public service broadcasting: as the streaming figures multiplied, so did the messages of thanks from the lockdowned masses across the globe who were using Moon Panda’s music to transport themselves out of their locked down discomfort zones. 'Slow Drive' was excellently featured in episode 5 of CBS Studios' 'The Republic Of Sarah', which was broadcast on North American TV channel The CW in July 2021.
When Moon Panda isn't lulling you into a dream with their hypnotic, mellow grooves they're whipping up trippy, psychedelic music videos that coax you into their world and ask you to stay awhile. Having notable shows supporting The Japanese House, Slow Club and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets - they've toured throughout the UK and Denmark, as well as being selected to play SXSW 2020. Fronted by California born songwriter/singer/bass player Maddy Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke, their music brings to mind artists like Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey, Warpaint, Daughter and Beach House. They enjoy documentaries about space, all the animals, their band dog B-MO, being by the sea, giant trees and great television.
