Gold Panda will release a new EP, entitled ‘Trust’, on 4 Mar via the producer’s own NOTOWN label. You can hear it on the SoundCloud player below.
The early streaming of the EP means you’ll be able to listen to it as you purchase tickets to Gold Panda’s first headline show in London for over a year when they go on sale on Friday at 9am. The show itself will take place at Electric in Brixton on 12 Jun.
Says Gold Panda of the EP: “The inspiration was just getting away from computers/laptops, [which] made my arrangements a bit more free and natural, I think. Just jamming and looking out my window, then taking a walk to see what I recorded, going back and copying the live arrangement. I think I’ve stripped out a layer of my music since [debut album] ‘Lucky Shiner’. Maybe it was feeling too cluttered. I think these tracks and the tracks for the new album have more space, but don’t feel empty”.
On choosing the tracks on the EP, he added: “[It’s about] trusting your instincts. I make a lot of music but not much gets to see the light of day, but I trust my judgement that these tracks are worthy enough to commit to vinyl”.
