Premiere: Zen Panda's Self Titled EP Is a Gem


Premiere: Zen Panda's Self Titled EP Is a Gem

Jason Katsaras

Zen Panda; among Adelaide folk these guys attract a certain warmth and smile when spoken about. Quite simply the quality of their live shows, and handful of previously released singles, makes people happy, and their debut self-titled EP is no different. The 7 track release is filled with floaty guitars and catchy vocals, finally we now have a solid chunk of music to sink our teeth into. The EP has been doing the rounds on local radio and all our headphones, it's a ripper.

Over the past six months during the recording process, the 6-piece have teased new material during shows supporting Kirin J. Callinan, The Jungle Giants, Bec Sandridge, and their hometown sister-act, The Montreals. From the manic rock goodness of 'Ego', to the slow, beautiful and confessional 'Prior Arrangement', in some ways this feels like an album, and we mean that in the best way possible. Sam Laver's vocals perfectly overlay a beautiful soundscape. The depth and execution of these songs is brilliant, many of which we're quite keen to have a boogie to this weekend.

Thats right, on Saturday the group will be launching this bad boy at Jive! Expect a broad array of new music along with live sets from very special guests Neon Tetra & Bermuda Bay music.

Check out the full Ep on iTunes and Spotify!
