Having recorded their debut EP in LA with super producer, Eric Broucek of DFA Records fame, with the high hat help of drummer Jim Orso (Hot Chip / Holy Ghost!), Panama’s resume of ‘awesome’ is more elaborate than simply the company they keep.
A hugely successful 2012 saw the Sydney-based five-piece hijacking the #1 spot on Hype Machine with the title track to their debut EP “It’s Not Over”. The video clip for the anthemic offering has garnered over a quarter of a million views across vimeo and youtube.

Released through Sydney-based dance label, Future Classic (Flume, Flight Facilities, New Navy), Panama are set to embark on a highly anticipated national tour of their debut this February.
Steeped in splashes of yacht rock, hopeful house music and an avid appreciation for the ‘80s, Panama make music of the nostalgia, euphoric pop varietal. Channeling the likes of Peter Gabriel with nods to companions Cut Copy and Van She, Panama have shared stages with the likes of Dappled Cities, Mitzi, Van She and Elizabeth Rose.
