In a time where pop music has become formulaic, Young Panda’s R&B driven approach to indie sets them apart (think Prince and Bill Withers with overtones of Passion Pit and Phoenix). The band has worked with Jason Goldstein of The Roots, produced and written for American Idol finalist Erika Van Pelt, and shared the stages with notable acts such as the Bad Rabbits and Outasight amongst others. Interestingly enough, the band was formed in 2011 but never released an album until today. After 2+ years of perfecting their sound, we’re happy to present their debut EP, “Some Beasts.”
Led by singer/producer Mike Maven, the band prides themselves on their diverse background of music, allowing them to offer up a new fresh sound for everyone to enjoy. To commemorate the release of the project, the band has decided to let loose the full EP stream for the first week of release. Take a listen and if you dig it, make sure to support them by purchasing the album on iTunes.
