Los Angeles-based trio together PANGEA are excited to reveal their video for "Badillac," from their recently-released Harvest Records debut of the same name. The sci-fi inspired clip was premiered by
A.V. Club, who noted that it "has some serious Young Frankenstein vibes, as well as some solid tunes to back it up."
together PANGEA has received much praise for Badillac, with Consequence of Sound awarding the album an A-, noting Badillac is "moody, it's fun, and it's the sort of thing I want to believe in - one of those rare listens where you think, Okay, I get this... and I think it gets me." MTV News ushered in its release by listing the album as one of the ten "Most Anticipated Indie Albums of 2014," while Stereogum declared "gear up for one of 2014's wildest records." VICE Magazine awarded Badillac with "Album Cover of the Month," and lauded the record, exclaiming "finally, a garage band with some fucking balls. Let 'em fly, motherfuckers." MTV Hive summed up the band aptly, saying "together PANGEA is just one fucking fun band." Referring to the 7-inch that preceded Badillac, Pitchfork said "Snakedog" is "an absolute shredder worthy of its awesomely ridiculous title." Badillac is now available on iTunes and Amazon.
together PANGEA do rock 'n' roll as it was meant to be - raw, unpredictable, and probably dangerous, but also blazing with intelligence, emotion and edgy experimentation. The Los Angeles-based trio made their bones as purveyors of post-millenial punk, but with their third full length release - and Harvest Records debut - Badillac, they pay their debt to the supersonic 90s rock that first inspired them. The band has not sacrificed a spurt of precious energy, instead integrating nuance and dynamic momentum to songs like "No Way Out" and the undeniably badass title track. The volcanic riffs and massive melodies are matched by an equally provocative lyrical stance, with songs like "Sick Shit" and the album-closing "Where the Night Ends" casting an acerbic eye over the wreckage of the party they helped start - it's 3 am and the drunken fun has given way to sexual panic, anxiety and self-doubt. Slightly stoned but by no means slack, Badillac reveals together PANGEA to be both confident and surprisingly committed, their audacious ambition already impossible to contain.
