Shen Panthers are a bunch of mates who love nothing more than sinkin’ a few cold ones and jamming the night away in the back shed. After playing for many years together, and finding themselves with not much else to do during COVID lockdown, the boys decided it was time to make the musical dream a reality.
Fast forward less than a year and Shen Panthers have released two singles, recorded a six-track EP with Brock Weston (Bugs) which is set to be released later in the year, played on the main stage at Agnes Blues, Roots and Rock festival, as well as headlined a sold out, home ground show at Solbar on the Sunshine Coast. Throw in a handful of shows around the Sunny Coast and Brisbane, and the fellas have been busy refining their unique sound.
Shen Panthers delicately fuse a range of influences and musical backgrounds to produce their unmatched psychedelic, indie-rock sound. Expect smooth rhythms, hard-hitting drums, melodic basslines and delicious leads combined with an unrestrained approach to songwriting. Shen Panthers draw on the sounds of Funk, Blues, Classic Rock, Reggae, Metal, Surf-Rock and Soul to produce music that anyone can get a little fruity to!
Exciting times ahead for Shen Panthers, and we can’t wait to share the love, and good times with the people!
