PRESENTED BY ANNIKA HAGEMANN

You really need to ask yourself what sort of magic Who’s Panda might be using. It seems like this young band from Switzerland has gotten everyone under their spell in the last couple of years. Journalists and critics have barely lost a bad word about them, continued to compare them to internationally successful acts and praised them for their different and original music. They talked about «music with balls», and captions like «big mouth, big content» and «wonderfully light-hearted» headlined some other reviews of their latest album. At this point, the band would like to thank everyone for their kind words – and at the same time start a new chapter.

After two records and over a hundred shows, Who’s Panda now present their third LP «Quiet Man». Even if the title might suggest that the once rock’n’roll thirsty pandas have been tamed, that’s definitely not the case: with ten new songs the band proves that they have stayed faithful to their roots and that they are also capable of taking a step forward. Indie music, of course. However, the new record contains less of a rock’n’roll vibe and leaves space for a good portion of 80s disco, glam and glitter. The blame is to be put on one song – and a two-week time out in the Swiss Alps. «After some intensive touring, we decided to take a time off in the Appenzellerland to work on new material and to drink lots and lots of beer», drummer Pascal Maibach says. Nobody thought that the title track for their new musical direction would be written at that time and place. On the contrary: Bass player Pierfrancesco Monteleone says «The change in style came subtle and naturally. The song had this disco feeling that everyone fell in love with».
