Since Pandas & People’s debut in 2013, the Colorado-based band has found themselves attracting the attention of famed artists, diehard fans, and national radio. With a unique sound blending organic instruments with layers of upbeat Pop sounds and hook laden songwriting, P&P’s recorded material continues to become more eclectic with each release.
Currently in regular rotation on 93.3 KTCL, Denver’s largest iHeart Alternative station, their new single, “Bad Honey”, showcases a new venture into a realm of Alternative Pop, crafting an earnest and personal blend of sound, with gripping melodies, moving lyrics and edgy rhythms sections. Only weeks after their debut album release, “Out to Sea” charted in the NACC top 200 charts nationally, receiving regular airplay across the country from both college and commercial radio – subsequently leading to single’s “Find You” and “On My Way” breaking into the top 10 Shazam charts in the Denver-Metro area.
In recent years, the band has received several accolades, including being named “Audience Favorite” in KTCL’s Hometown for the Holiday’s competition and a two-time winner of “Best Folk Band” in 2016 and “Best Americana Act” in 2017 by Colorado’s renowned Westword Magazine.
Sharing the stage with well-known acts like Twenty One Pilots, The Doobie Brothers, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Leftover Salmon, Judah & the Lion and many more, Pandas & People are no strangers to a large audience. As a whole, the band continues to thrive not only in the Colorado music scene, but all over the country, and they are set to release a plethora of new content in 2021.
