I get extremely excited when I accidentally find a great album. This month, Panama’s Always EP is that album. I was doing my weekly browse of Bandcamp and found their single “Always” featured on the front page. 30 seconds into it I was hooked.
Panama is a band from Sydney, Australia. They describe themselves as “Hopeful house enthusiasts and purveyors of nostalgic electronic sounds.” and that couldn’t be truer. Electro-pop fans will instantly fall in love with this band. They don’t over do the sonic beats. Instead they mix in piano and drum rhythms that give their music a calmer tone than your typical electro-based tunes. There style is like a mix between Alt-J, the Naked & Famous & M83. Check out the music video for “Always” below.
