Future Classic have signed a new band from Sydney’s bubbling live music scene. Lead by Jarrah McCleary, best known for his previous project – The Dirty Secrets, the new band are called Panama. Their debut single, Magic, was recorded in LA with Eric Boucek from DFA records.
Magic is a modern summer anthem and something sure to warm you up if you’re stuck in winter. The track will be released on vinyl with remixes by Permanent Vacation regulars Midnight Magic (you might have spotted their remix in The Magician’s Magictape 24) and DFA heavyweight Gavin Russom (LCD Soundsystem & The Crystal Ark). Magic has been picking up lots of love from Australian radio too with triple j and community radio already getting behind it.
Panama’s live show is already a huge hit, having supported Dappled Cities, Parachute Youth and Elizabeth Rose (recorded for Live Feed on FBi 94.5). If you want to catch Panama’s stellar live show in the flesh, they’ll be supporting Van She in Melbourne and Sydney as well as playing UNSW Roundhouse and supporting Northeast Party House at Goodgod Small Club in July.
