Gold Panda releases new Brexit-inspired EP
London producer Gold Panda has just dropped a surprise 5-track EP titled Kingdom, reportedly inspired by the tumultuous results of the recent Brexit referendum. A press release (via FACT) cited the experiences of GP’s immigrant Afghan neighbor, in particular, as an influence on the release:
It was made after talking to a neighbour who moved his family from Afghanistan to the UK. He ordered a phone off Amazon so he could call home, but the delivery driver signed for it and kept it. I thought this was a pretty shitty welcome. I made a couple of less happy songs that are very very loosely based around that and my Brexit fears, which were sadly confirmed.
The EP comes shortly after the release of his latest LP Good Luck And Do Your Best. Stream it below.
