Biography

Panda Bear of Animal Collective (AKA Noah Lennox) makes music of self-harmony, orchestral boy-loops, and in latter years, an irresistible pull towards the future. There is a unique Panda method within the dense weave of melody - repetition, space, and a cathartic tunefulness inhabit every Panda Bear release, leaving the listener in a state of perfect hypnosis.

Latest Release

Panda Bear & Sonic Boom Reset

Album | 12th August 2022

Although Panda Bear and Sonic Boom are no strangers to each other’s music, Reset marks their first collaborative release. When SB pitched an idea to take their working relationship to the next level, he reckoned PB might reject the proposition outright—in the nine gloriously, feverishly hook-bound tracks of Reset, though, you can hear exactly how much he loved the prospect.

SB’s notion was simple enough: After lugging his records to Portugal years ago, his fascination was renewed by old favorites and standards he had not heard in years. Something struck him, the way the ornate intros by Eddie Cochran or the Everly Brothers felt largely like stage curtains, compelling in their own right even if they had very little to do with the hits that followed. SB began crafting loops from these preambles, twisting and bending the parts like scrap metal before sending them onto PB.

The kernel of Reset emerged not long after international lockdowns began. If making it supplied temporary medicine for the duo, it is now permanently so for the rest of us, a reminder that sometimes playing and singing along to old favorites with friends can be enough to make the world feel a bit better.
