Trash Panda doesn’t give a fuck about most things, but what they do care about is bringing unapologetic, psychedelic rock to venues around Atlanta. The guys have been hard at work this past year and are ready to unveil forthcoming LP, Starclimber, on Fri., Feb. 9.

ALBUMCOVER Art By Manzel Bowman'Starclimber' takes on an authentic and funky combination of euphoria and desolation.Art by Manzel BowmanThe group has been gaining momentum since 2015, and received more than 1 million listens on Spotify since releasing the dreamlike 2016 debut album, Off. Starclimber takes on a new perspective in an authentic and funky combination of euphoria and desolation.

With “Heartbreak Pulsar,” Patrick Taylor (vocalist, guitar), Max Hewett (bass), and Mitch Standfield (drums) strike a balance of warm, energetic riffs and dark truth about the lack of depth and character they’ve encountered in the dating world. “We were more concerned with catching the feeling of the song instead of having the most pristine take we could muster,” Hewett says.

The album continues playing on the group’s outward movement and genre experimentation, pulling inspiration from jazz, R&B and funk influences. In January, the band released the upbeat, stand alone single “Stay Low,” which keeps listeners wondering what’s coming next.


With Antarcticats. $10-$25. 9 p.m. Fri., Feb. 19. Drunken Unicorn, 736 Ponce de Leon Ave. N.E., 404-361-2562, thedrunkenunicorn.net.
