Don't Panico

Boards of Canada once said "Music Is Math". We don't necessarily agree with that but sometimes a good combination of talent results in a great record. Take the second Panico album for instance: 5 years after the acclaimed Subliminal Kill, the equation is simple...

Solid songs, oscillating between punk rock and indie pop, well rehearsed and played live dozens of times


A week in a great studio (Franz Ferdinand's studio in Glasgow)


A great engineer (Franz Ferdinand collaborator Paul Savage from Chemikal Underground)


A cult producer (Gareth Jones, the man behind legendary records from Einsturzende Neubauten, Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode, Liars, These New Puritans)
