Panama drop new single “Jungle” and announce tour dates

Sydney-based duo Panama (Jarrah McCleary and Tim Commandeur) have just given us their first track in a year, ahead of their spot supporting Years & Years in July. Following from last year’s offering Stay Forever, the new track was mixed and produced by ARIA award winner Eric J. Dobowsky (Chet Faker, Flight Facilities).

Equal parts 80s nostalgia and warm pop-electronica, Jungle showcases fluid, layered synths and soft, echoing vocals, accented by punching, popping beats. The track is set for release on June 5th via Future Classic. The video for Jungle is already out, and you can watch it below. The video focuses on film crews and actresses over the course of shooting.

Taking the nostalgic sounds of Panama and running with them, the video was created by German collective A Nice Idea Every Day and is filled with washed out tones and the repetition of static cutaway footage.  It acts as the final installment of a three-part series spanning as many years, tying the clips for It’s Not Over and Always together with the new track.
