Birmingham based Genuine Panama do a wriggly, indie-soul type of business. Brass sections and bass solos meet pop-ready lyrical melodies, hitting some uncharted sweet spot between Bombay Bicycle Club and Lettuce.

Since forming in 2017, Genuine Panama’s early gigs in art galleries, cramped cafes, and car park rooftops have given way to rambunctious headline shows in Birmingham, Bristol, and Cheltenham, as well as a support slot on the sold out Birmingham date of Cassia‘s UK tour.

Having released their debut EP ‘Itchy Teeth’ in summer 2019, Genuine Panama are preparing to release new music in February 2020.
