Birmingham and Bristol based Genuine Panama do a wriggly, indie-soul type of business. Brass sections and bass solos meet pop-ready lyrical melodies, hitting some uncharted sweet spot between Bombay Bicycle Club and Lettuce.
Since forming in 2017, Genuine Panama's early gigs in art galleries, cramped cafes, and car park rooftops have given way to rambunctious headline slots in Birmingham, Bristol, and Cheltenham. Their debut EP 'Itchy Teeth' was released in summer 2019, along with an outlandish music video involving an insatiable, purple-headed riff-bandit.
With plenty of songs still reserved exclusively for small venues across the UK, Genuine Panama are preparing to release new music in 2020.
