Trash Panda is a new and rapidly rising band from Atlanta, Ga. After the successful release of their debut EP, Off, which charted their third single “Giuseppe” to number 2 on both Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts (making it just below the weeknd’s “starboy”), it was evident Trash Panda had created something new and fresh.
The Off EP came into being in the minds of Patrick Taylor and Mitch Standfield in summer of 2016 adding Max Hewett on soon after to complete the trio. The band is known for their DIY attitude and their insistence upon home-recording and their new LP is no exception. It was recorded in a house lovingly dubbed “the treehouse” just north of Atlanta, where the band exercises its belief in capturing good energy over technical perfection.
Over a million plays on Spotify later, the band has finished recording a new record blending together psychedelic rock and indie, even soulful sensibilities with nonchalance and a rebellious spirit sometimes fusing punk and soul in an off alchemy of ferociousness and stoned malaise. Their live show at one moment can be aggressive and wild and transfuse to a calm, hip-shaking spacey groove.
