Ahead of their return to SXSW Festival later this week, bewitching dream pop duo Moon Panda return today with their gorgeous new single ‘Tangerine Light’, complete with a mind-bending animated video from Wobbly Lobster – stream here
Psychedelic tinged and drenched in waterfall synths, ‘Tangerine Light’ is mellow in its euphoria. Speaking further, bassist and vocalist Maddy Myers says the track is “about a moment in time, one of those huge life leaps where everything is changing and you have to try and listen to yourself and stay authentic; clicking into place and riding the wave. There’s so much power in moving gently.”
Along with their new single, the band have announced that they will be embarking on a headline UK tour this October, playing dates in Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Bristol. Full dates below and tickets here.
Composed of Californian vocalist/bassist Maddy Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke, Moon Panda signed to legendary British label Fierce Panda for their second EP ‘Make Well’ in 2020. The release earned critical acclaim for its luscious, blissed out vibes 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.”
‘Tangerine Light’ heralds a new era for Moon Panda, who released their debut album ‘What On Earth’ last year. The album saw support from the likes of MOJO, The Independent, The New Cue, Loud & Quiet and The Line of Best Fit, who in their 8/10 review praised the record for “evoking a sense of otherworldly dreaminess”.
Moon Panda will be playing ‘Tangerine Light’ and more new material at an intimate underplay at The Waiting Room in London on Thursday 18th May.
