Go "In The Forest" On Panda Riot's Noir-ish New Track

By Jon Graef in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 31, 2012 6:20PM


Dreamy, dance-y psychedelic pop quartet Panda Riot have a new track for a compilation on shoegaze specialty label Saint Marie Records, and its noir-ish strains make for the best kind of somber listening. With a soft, but militaristic, shuffling backbeat, waves of tremolo guitar, and dissonant piano, Panda Riot weave a spooky, simple melodic tapestry of sound. Put this on your Halloween playlist as a last minute addition.
