Panama – Always

Panama first caught my attention about a year ago with single “It’s Not Over” and now the Aussies have put together their sophomore EP Always (via future classic and available for free download). Of course, Always was released while I was away in South America, meaning I am  getting to write about titular track, “Always,” about a week late. That being said, “Always” offers a proper kick-off for Panama’s return EP. Frontman Jarrah McCleary is a classically-trained pianist and so it is no surprise that the song opens with a piano. McCleary’s piano and vocals have a  heavy presence throughout the entire track, even when the drum and synth elements kick in, which create fairly touching atmospherics. Overall though, “Always” is simply well-packaged electro-pop and only deepens my interest for a full-length from these guys.

    Excellent song. It is also in the middle of the Hawaii mix if anyone made it that far. This song really does deserve it’s own post though. Nice work Jay.

    Glad to see we’re all on the same page anyway. Clearly we have similar tastes!
