Jade Tree is pleased to announce the release of PANDA & ANGEL‘s first EP release today. On this EP, the Seattle band paints a passively angst-filled portrait of lovelorn, heartache and loneliness. PANDA & ANGEL combine the sedated dissonance of early Low and Chan Marshall (Cat Power) with the melancholy-filled distortion of My Bloody Valentine and the stark truth of PJ Harvey. Anchored by the haunting and hypnotic voice of Carrie Murphy (Touchdown Eagle), PANDA & ANGEL‘s EP offers a heavy-hearted perspective on losing one’s way and ultimately starting anew. The end result is a poignant memoir of melancholic regret, cathartic revelations and vibrant but tempered pop orchestrations. PANDA & ANGEL is available today.
In other recent P&A news, the band recently finished a West Coast tour, winding through much of California before returning home to Seattle. The band will be playing select dates throughout Washington in August, including a CD release show on in Seattle. Joining P&A on the 5th is S, with a full US tour soon to be announced.

"Panda & Angel crew ably crank out songs that are equally upbeat and infectious." -
"In simple terms, their sound is very moving, their music can move from delicate melodies and vocals into a wall of graceful distortion in the blink of an eye." -SKATTERBRAIN
"Panda and Angel’s self-titled EP is packed with all of the familiar, icy heartache and loneliness of their live show." -SEATTLE WEEKLY
"Panda & Angel dance a fine line between the distortion that wraps many of the songs and a gentle melody the drives them. If their debut EP is any indication, they can navigate this border with a deftness that is beyond their brief existence as a band. Maybe all the dark and grey gets to people more than we want to admit, but with upstart bands like Panda & Angel, at least Seattle can boast a resurgent indie music scene." – THREE IMAGINARY GIRLS: SEATTLE’S INDIE-POP PRESS
