PANDA$ PREMIERE MUSIC VIDEO FOR SINGLE “PARI$”
RELEASE NEW SONG “H.O.V.”
ANNOUNCE SIGNING TO VIRGIN RECORDS
Today, PANDA$ share the music video for their buzzworthy single “PARI$” [feat. Jute$]. Watch it HERE.
Playing out like the wildest Snapchat story ever, the Los Angeles-based duo—Manny and Landa Panda—shot the whole clip almost exclusively via their iPhones. Joined by Toronto rapper Jute$, they bring the lyrics—“Saw you on Instagram, can’t help but notice that you moved to Cali, and I’m goin’ for the weekend”—to life, complete with a narrative of unrequited online love, graffiti style filters, and technicolor thought bubbles. The visual fittingly opens up the world of PANDA$ to audiences at large.
With the arrival of the video, PANDA$ also announce their signing to Virgin Records and herald their forthcoming full-length debut—due out later this year. Previewing what’s to come, the pair unleash their follow-up “H.O.V”. Listen HERE.
Formed in New York in 2016, PANDA$ began when Manny “decided to lock myself in a room and just vibe ’cause I felt like I had so much left to say.” After having surgery on his vocal chords that could have possibly ended his career and ability to sing, Manny felt like this was his second chance. “The only goal was to make authentic music that represented who we were.” Ultimately the music Manny and Landa Panda created was meant to serve a greater purpose: giving each listener a deeper sense of what’s possible in their own world. “The hope is that this dream of ours will inspire other people to do the same thing we did. Find out who you truly are and what you really want to do and do it! You got one life, don’t live it on someone else’s terms.” The duo churn out big screen-worthy anthems that are as experimental as they are engaging. Stay tuned for more to come from PANDA$.
