Sticks & Bricks EP - released 2009

I Begin EP - released April 2011



PANDA SU could be described as something of an enigma. Half Portuguese, born in the rural Highlands of Scotland and having spent her formative years deep in the forests of Fife, she found her own voice early last year with the release of the critically acclaimed Sticks & Bricks EP, and is now set to release her follow-up I Begin EP on 18th April 2011.

One of life's interlopers, her music stands on the edge of reason, where Su looks into the precipice with a wry smile and a nervous anticipation that is mirrored in her lyrics. Darkly fascinating, she weaves her spell with a recipe of childlike simplicity that is nothing less than compelling.

Awarded "Best Newcomer" in the 2010 Jockrock Scottish Music Industry Awards, PANDA SU has gained a worldwide following, through her constant touring & festival appearances. The inclusion of her song Eric is Dead in the Finale of Skins Season 4 has taken PANDA SU's appeal to a far greater audience.

Her new EP, I Begin is a collection of recordings made with producer Robin Sutherland in Dundee over Christmas 2010. Yet again, PANDA SU has managed to pull off a delicious slice of dark pop devised to disarm the listeners' subconscious.

Bee Song leads the way and lulls the listener in with a false sense of familiarity. The song is a delightful gateway into the deep and highly complex mind of PANDA SU, but exactly who, or what the bee is must be left open to individual interpretation.

I Begin is a song which, until now, hasn't seen the light of day. Beautifully hypnotic, it makes use of a choir of schoolchildren in an enchanting mantra that sits comfortably alongside the dark electronica that is fast becoming a trademark of PANDA SU.

The EP is completed with studio recordings of two songs, which surfaced during her gigs and festival appearances of summer 2010. Alphabet Song and Facts and Figures were a must for inclusion in this collection of recordings.

I Begin EP is released worldwide on 18 April 2011, but for those who can't wait until then, the CD will be on sale exclusively at PANDA SU's gigs and mini tour during February / March 2011.
