Australian label Future Classic has built up a reputation for harvesting some of the best talent this country has to offer, with the likes of Flight Facilities, Luke Million, and Flume gracing their roster. Another member of the label is Sydney-based Panama, whose first single "Magic" was featured on Indie Shuffle earlier this year. Their debut EP, out next month, will also include their new track "It's Not Over." The EP was recorded in L.A. with former DFA engineer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost!, Cut Copy), and will no doubt continue the band's rise to prominence.
While "It's Not Over" contains the tropical touches which made "Magic" so addictive, it's slightly more restrained than the bubbly first single. Incredibly smooth for the most part, the track is broken up with occasional flurries of percussion, while the vocal arrangements are simple but haunting. It's got an evocative nature to it, and this is perfectly portrayed in the accompanying video.
As a group, Panama oozes class - and this track does nothing to dispel the buzz surrounding them.
We've launched a news section, and we're looking for writers to join our team! You'll be working with our News Editor Lauren Ziegler, who is based in Sydney -- but you can be from anywhere!
We'll be writing about music news, sharing interviews, and pulling together playlists for TV and movie soundtracks.
What we're looking for:
Passionate, vibrant, talented people who are dedicated to writing, music and writing about music
Witty writers with a personality that shines through your words
Music lovers with a passion for rap, R&B, electronic, indie & rock
Experience not necessary but strong spelling and grammar skills are important
Budding writers who value quality over clickbait
Creatives who want to go the extra mile and produce outstanding, unique and interesting content
What you'll do:
News: informative, interesting and up to date music news
Features: artist features, investigations, humour, op-ed etc.
We know that work/uni comes first. Ideally, we love our writers to commit to 5-10 articles per week, but we're flexible around study and job commitments. Basically, if you commit to a story or deadline, please stick to it. Unfortunately we can't pay you (or ourselves), but you'll get free review tickets for gigs/festivals, free music and interview opportunities. Most of all, you have the unique opportunity to be part of a growing part of Indie Shuffle, to watch it flourish and to help build something you can be proud of. We've got a brilliant, friendly and hilarious team, we're growing bigger every week, and we want you to be a part of it.
