Austin-based electronic outfit Panjoma present the single “Sun and Moon”. Previewing their new Sun and Moon EP marks the band’s return to the music scene, back with what they feel is their best work ever.

The Sun and Moon EP is Panjoma‘s first release in eight years, following 2014’s Personacide album and 2012’s Panjoma album in 2012. These were preceded by the singles “Death Mantra” and “Transmit Invocation”, both with videos created by two-time Latin Grammy Award recipient Paul Beck, known for his work with David Byrne, The Calm Blue Sea, and feature films ‘Waking Life‘ and ‘A Scanner Darkly‘.

An avant-garde darkwave electro femme-pop DMT-jazz band with a funky edge, Panjoma’s sound is as eclectic as their influences, ranging from Bjork, Aphex Twin, Orbital and Squarepusher to Thundercat, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Daft Punk, Le Chic, Mr. Fingers, Jazzanova and Depeche Mode:

Our influences behind the ‘Sun and Moon’ EP are love, philosophy, and psychedelics. The ‘Sun and Moon’ single, which drives the dreamy vibe behind the whole EP, is all about how the Sun and Moon are forever following each other forever longing to be next to each other, but forever being unable to be together. The theme transitions into dreams, where anything is possible“, says Mary Panjoma.

Panjoma combines electronic sound elements with conventional instruments, which they often use in unconventional ways, such as filtered pianos or e-bows on bass, producing their unique sound using a vast array of drum machines, samplers, keyboards, software programs, and synthesizers.

Formed in 2006, core members Mary Panjoma (vocals, keyboard, production) and Patrik Nilsson (bass, drum machines, samplers, production) quickly hit it off upon meeting, resulting in a marriage and the birth of Panjoma. Despite their subsequent divorce, Pat and Mary remain committed to their shared musical quest.
