Panda Riot

Inspired with the dreamy underwater imagery of their collaborative brief film, Dolphins and Porpoises, Rebecca Scott (vocals, tips) and Brian Prepare (drum piece of equipment, guitar) shaped the equally dreamy indie pop group Panda Riot in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania circa 2005. The band’s buzzy electric guitar riffs, gossamer vocals, and swaths of synthesized distortion (the duo filtered their keyboards through a loss of life metal pedal) provided a nod to early-’90s functions like Tender Capture, the Softies, and My Bloody Valentine. The duo passed out their debut handmade CD-R EP, Paper Airplanes, at their concert events in 2006, plus they self-released their 1st full-length recording, She Dares EVERYTHING, the following 12 months. After shifting to Chicago, Panda Riot brought a few new members in to the collapse, bassist Justin Cheng and drummer Melissa, who quickly parted ways using the music group. Percussionist José Rodriguez was induced board to circular out the group’s audio. Panda Riot’s sophomore EP, Much & Near, premiered around the Reflection/Reflection label this year 2010. The band’s profile loved a healthy increase in 2011 if they came out at NYC Popfest, posting the stage with like-minded indie pop functions Metallic Swans, the Motifs, and Children on a Criminal offense Spree, and in early 2012 if they released the “Severe Radical Ladies” solitary for Saint Marie Information. A year later on they released the “Amanda in the Clouds” flexi disk before their full-length debut, North Automatic Music, noticed the light of day time in March 2013.
