Taking influence from the sounds of Portishead, Mitski, Beirut, Beach House, and Angel Olsen debut single Rabbit is atmospheric and breathless with a dark undercurrent. Produced by Cam Blackwood (Florence & the Machine, British Sea Power) and released on boutique label My Little Empire, the single was inspired by a character formed in Heiko Julien’s collection of wit-filled 21st century love poems ‘I’m Ready To Die A Violent Death’ Myers explains
“Rabbit is about unhealthy love. It’s someone so infatuated with their partner that they can’t end their tragic, dependent relationship. I wanted Rabbit to feel quite hypnotic and have some edge. Like a predator lurking around.”
With disparate high brow influences such as writer Heiko Julien, maverick composer Charles Ives and the technical guitar intricacies of Erik Mongrain, the music of Moon Panda manages to be beautifully relatable. With mellow soundcapes lush with electronic harmonies that will delight lovers of Air and Zero 7.
