Oh, I’m calling on my teenage self for this one. Upon my search through the bands of CMW, there was one that I was so pleased to find, it had my inner teen screaming and my adult-self planning my evening around the show. For nine years, Hot Panda has been making their way through the indie rock scene with their special blend of garage-rock with influences of indie-pop coupled with skilled guitar and finished with, lead singer, Chris Connelly’s raspy voice, that no matter what mood can get you all riled up.
I came across this band a few weeks ago while scouring the internet for some new tunes. Instantly, I loved their sound. Being from Winnipeg, they struck a cord and I couldn’t not write about them. So take a look at my interview with Daniel of FINN and get to know a little more about the band.
