SINGLE “MAGIC” NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL WITH MIDNIGHT MAGIC, GAVIN RUSSOM REMIXES. BRAND NEW EP SLATED FOR OCTOBER 22nd
“With ’80s throwback synths and lazy day melodies, this track is the perfect way to glide into warmer weather.”– Nylon Magazine
Future Classic is excited to announce a new signing – a new band to emerge from Sydney’s bubbling live music scene lead by Jarrah McCleary called Panama.
A classically trained pianist from the age of six, Jarrah McCleary grew up in the sticky heat of the Northern Territory. His previous project, The Dirty Secrets saw the band working between Australia and London with iconic producer and engineer, Nick Terry (Klaxons, Libertines).
The first single from Panama is Magic, a modern summer anthem and something sure to warm you up if you’re stuck in winter. Magic was produced and mixed in Los Angeles by Eric Broucek of DFA fame (Holy Ghost, Eleanor Friedberger, !!!) and will be released on vinyl with remixes by Permanent Vacation regulars Midnight Magic (you might of spotted their remix in The Magician’s Magic tape ) and DFA heavyweight Gavin Russom (LCD Soundsystem & The Crystal Ark). It’s available on vinyl now and at Beatport HERE.

Recent praise for Panama:
“Australia’s really been whipping out the big guns lately with some artists on the rise. Sydney-based Panama is sure to be one of them.” – Filter
“uplifting, and reminding of an impending spring renewal, is a potent antidote for anyone’s case of the winter blues, if you happen to be experiencing those, along with that mind-crushing case of Harshattackia.” – URB
"Pretty hard to fault indie pop that’s as well executed as this. 4/5"- Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
"I may have just set a record for listening to one song on repeat. I lost count around 14."- Indie Shuffle
