The England based dream-rock quartet Moon Panda head towards the release of the EP Pastel Pool next month.
Their latest track to surface – Rabbit, akin to previous material of theirs featured, heads in to its own warren of discovery through a tunnel interconnected, yet distinctive, of dreamy spirals and hazy undulations.
The first song to be revealed from the EP has surfaced as a live performance of Soft Skeleton, a track that melts in to the limbic system.
Each time Moon Panda have featured there has been something different about the set-up. Initially a US based duo in 2016, an England based duo last year, now a trio, though still based in England – the consistency has always been the quality of the output and its dreamy demeanour which gently flows around the listener.
The US based ethereal-rock duo Moon Panda is a project fresh out of the blocks.

With a couple of tracks to surface in quick succession Moon Panda is an idea to grab hold of immediately as are many of the musical entities featured.
I first chatted with Maddy in early October and in the intervening month the project has changed to a new direction and new name – for now by way of an introduction and perhaps a swansong – Your Doll. A couple of musicians worth keeping an eye out for in the future in which ever iteration they next surface – one only hopes as Moon Panda again.
