Originally out last year as one of Australia's hottest exports via Future Classic, the US is finally now seeing the release of Panama's Always EP, through 300 Entertainment. Most of the EP has been featured by us previously, with the exception of the brilliant new US-only bonus track, Strange Feeling, which you'll find here. Much like it's stellar companions How We Feel, Destroyer, and the title track Always — Strange Feeling carries out the spotless production and wonderfully relaxed yet highly uplifting style that's hooked the ears of many courtesy of frontman and songwriter, Jarrah McCleary. Expansive vocals, steady piano chords, and tasteful sax notes carry you through on hopeful waves of infectious indie dance vibes. If you haven't caught Panama fever yet, now's the time to let that happen, as this year will surely be one of meteoric rise for the breakout band. Catch them on their first trip to North America for SXSW, and get your copy of the EP, here.
