Anonymous Madrid-based post-everything duo Der Panther draw artistic influence from the vastness of psychedelic and ambient music, the unbridled funk of Afrobeat and disco, post-punk’s dirgy basslines and countless other genres. With records to their credit issued on their Evolving Tracks label, Der Panther’s eclectic, ever-evolving sound soars to the next level on their brand-new Lux album mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Animal Collective, Two Gallants, Mice Parade) which we’re elated to world premiere.
Over the course of seven sprawling tracks, the pair present meticulously crafted songs that wrap their arms around Balearic beats, pop and intriguing experimental offerings. Der Panther aren’t a studio project. In fact, the twosome take their live show quite seriously, performing inside a cube illuminated by bespoke projections.
Listen to Der Panther’s Lux below and get ready to take a musical trip you’ll never want to end.
Der Panther’s Lux is released May 18, 2015.
