PRAISE FOR PANAMA:
"...adventurousness, blended with McCleary's heartfelt touch, makes the band a perfect fit for the esteemed Australian dance label Future Classic. It's also home to Flume and Chet Faker, and Panama seem poised to make a similar splash Stateside after making their American live debut earlier this year at SXSW. The trio is currently on the road again, and if a sold out show at Brooklyn hotspot Baby's All Right is any indication, they'll surely be back for more."
- MTV Iggy
"Like their Down Under dwelling buddies Jagwar Ma and Chet Faker, Panama makes the kind of swirly, propulsive piano music that perfectly soundtracks those hot summer nights. On Always, the guys offer up a baritone-laden collection of singles and remixes punctuated with spacey guitars, '80s-indebted synths, and even a few well-placed saxophone runs. But don't confuse Panama with the big, bombastic dance pop of acts like M83 - these guys dabble in the computerized but have their feet planted firmly in the world of live musicianship."
- Santa Barbara Independent
"Panama's synth-pop is likely to find a welcome reception during the trio's first tour in the United States. Fans of Grouplove and Phoenix will appreciate Panama, and the Australians' throwback sound will send devotees of early Depeche Mode and Erasure into blissful reveries."
- Kansas City Star
