trash panda EPK
Trash Panda is a new and rapidly rising band from Atlanta, ga. After the successful release of their debut EP, Off, which charted their third single “Giuseppe” to number 2 on both Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts (making it just below the weeknd's "starboy"), it was evident Trash Panda had created something new and fresh. The Off EP came into being in the minds of Patrick Taylor and Mitch Standfield in summer of 2016 adding Max Hewett on soon after to complete the trio. The band is known for their DIY attitude and their insistence upon home-recording and their new LP is no exception. It was recorded in a house lovingly dubbed “the treehouse” just north of Atlanta, where the band exercises its belief in capturing good energy over technical perfection. Over a million plays on Spotify later, the band has finished recording a new record blending together psychedelic rock and indie, even soulful sensibilities with nonchalance and a rebellious spirit sometimes fusing punk and soul in an off alchemy of ferociousness and stoned malaise. Their live show at one moment can be aggressive and wild and transfuse to a calm, hip-shaking spacey groove.

"Watching and listening to “Atlanta Girls,” the new single and video from indie rock trio Trash Panda, it seems easy to relegate the song to mere party anthem status. After all, there are the punchy pop grooves, the exuberant hooks, and the mega-watt chorus, all set to images of young women dancing, celebrating, and cutting loose. It’s indelibly catchy, yes, and also on the brink of almost hyper commercialization. But pay close enough attention to the track and you’ll catch a glimpse of something darker bleeding from the edges. While “Atlanta Girls” is undoubtedly a paean to the women of our city, it also serves as a satirization of the bar scene as the band confronts the corrosive masculinity that often infests major parts of Atlanta nightlife." - Immersive Atlanta
