Panther on Tour
- Words: Fred Miketa
Alongside acts like The Blow, YACHT, and White Rainbow (who are totally redefining electro-pop), Panther is currently luring souls into his fan base with his acclaimed live shows across the States. Known to his friends as Charlie Salas-Humara, he’s already been nominated for MTV2’s Video of the Year Award, in addition to having a tour with Ratatat and The Gossip under his belt.
Panther’s hybrid brand of electro has many faces. When he’s not hollering in spastic falsetto fashion (imagine a lemur and Prince in the sack), he’s probably grinding away on bass or epileptic-style dancing in circles.
On Secret Lawns, Panther explores what just one guy with a bunch of instruments and a computer can actually do. Complete with the artillery of synth-punk grooves and bootleg 808 kicks, this debut full-length is currently making indie-rock house parties from coast to coast that much more debauched.
Secret Lawns is out now on Fryk Beat.
