Brought together by the sounds of Portishead, Mitski, Beirut, Beach House and Angel Olsen, Californian song writer Maddy Myers, Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke, Bristol synth played George Godwin and London based percussionist Alfie Webber make up the now Brighton based Moon Panda. Today, the quartet have shared their debut single Rabbit.
Rabbit starts out with an endearing, hypnotic beat. Easing into the luscious vocals of Maddy Myers, the quartet’s debut is a stunning example of dreamy guitar pop. From mellow guitar to heavenly electronic harmonies, Moon Panda ooze a soothing feel from start to finish. Speaking about the track, Maddy explains “Rabbit is about unhealthy love. It’s someone someone so infatuated with their partner that they can’t end their tragic, dependent relationship.”
Moon Panda have unveiled a taste of their true potential in Rabbit, an intriguing and soothing debut which sets the bar high for their future releases.
