Everyone wants to get back to the “simple, youthful” days. When we think of soul music we think of the legendary Prince. So why not sit back and add a little soul, hip-hop and rock & roll to your mix.
The brilliant, 4-piece band, Young Pandas from Providence, RI. has risen out of a collaboration with the Grammy award winning engineer for The Roots. You just have to hear them and dance. They were influenced by talented bands such as Miike Snow, Bon Iver, J Dilla, and Bad Rabbits and their unique name, Young—meaning fun and unafraid to push the limits, and Pandas–a rare and endangered species, makes you want to know who these guys really are. Listen to their hit track called, “Change.” The upbeat tempo allows you to sing along and dance, but also allows you to understand the lyrics. With beautiful vocals, guitars, bass, drums and more…it’s a great atmosphere.
You can catch them on a national tour this March thru April, in 13 cities and part of the huge SXSW showcase in Austin, TX. Their new EP comes out in March right before they hit the road. Don’t forget to check them out; watch their videos and progress on the road.
It’s great to call these guys my friends and I love giving them support throughout their music careers.
