D//E Premiere: Moon Panda: Slow Drive

Having joined the roster of the great indie label, Fierce Panda, dreampop act Moon Panda will be releasing their new EP, Make Well, on July 3rd, 2020, and part of it is the longing ballad, Slow Drive, which streams for the first time below.

"I wrote this song in isolation when my husband and I couldn't be in the same country (he's Danish, I'm American)," says songwriter and bassist Maddy Myers. "I wanted so badly for him to comfort me but he was across the world, asleep. So I wrote this song as a kind of comfort to myself. It makes me feel strong and calm."

That comfort and ease are evident in both the songwriting and Myers' sweetly toned vocal performance, which also strikes as deeply melancholic, yet, unfaltering. Slow Drive is a gentle track which comes across even dreamier than the already musing standards the band has set via the mellowness of their previous offerings.

Moon Panda are composed of Myers and Danish guitarist Gustav Moltke. The band was scheduled to play four shows at the now cancelled SXSW, and their new EP will be following Pastel Pools from last year.
