PANAMA DROP NEW SINGLE “JUNGLE

OUT JUNE 5 ON FUTURE CLASSIC

Watch the Video below

Following the release of the much-lauded Always EP in 2013 and the atmospheric “Stay Forever” last year, Panama, today treat us to another beautifully crafted piece of music in the form of “Jungle”, out June 5th on Future Classic.

The track has been mixed and produced by Eric J. Dubowsky, who won ‘Best Engineer’ at the ARIA Awards in 2014 for his work mixing Chet Faker’s Built on Glass album and is also known for working with Flight Facilities on their debut LP Down To Earth. With an intro that exhibits the instantly recognizable warmth of Panama’s nostalgic electronic sound, “Jungle” is a delicate and stirring demonstration of main songwriter Jarrah McLeary’s talent for conjuring subtle ear-worm pop melodies. The softly cooed vocals alongside layers of synths, creating an eloquent and emotive song reminiscent of a Route 66 road trip mixtape.

The accompanying video by Germany-based collective ‘A Nice Idea Everyday’, is another instalment in a series which also includes videos for 2012 breakthrough single “It’s Not Over” as well as the aforementioned hit “Always”. The concept ties in three seemingly separate story lines when the mysterious girl in the red car re-appears for a final curtain call – forcing one to re-watch the previous episodes in order to find some form of chronological sense in this intriguing plot.

Sydney-based Panama, made up of Jarrah McCleary and Tim Commandeur, garnered widespread acclaim with their Always EP in 2013 which saw them soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, accruing well over 2 million Soundcloud plays as well as landing airplay on BBC Radio 1 and taking out a coveted spot in Triple J’s iconic Hottest 100. This was followed by the release of “Stay Forever” which marked the beginning of an extensive tour across Europe and the US last year, taking in Berghain in Berlin, Sonorama Festival in Spain and the iconic Reading and Leeds Festival in the UK as well as sold out shows in New York, Chicago and LA.

Never ones to rest on their laurels, Panama are touring their new, stripped down two-piece live show around Europe as we speak, hitting the likes of Berlin Festival and Primavera Sound in Barcelona. The boys will also be hitting London for a headline show at Oslo in Hackney – dates listed below.
