Stream: PANES, “Bones Without You”

Shooting star percussion and blood-rush bass from new London duo.

April 23, 2014


PANES are a relatively new London duo comprised of singer Tyson McVey and recording engineer Shaun Savage. They are not as transparent as the press shot above would have you believe but they do make luscious songs that occupy that aching space between R&B, pop and post-rock. "Bones Without You" is the first single from PANES' forthcoming Self Titled EP on Smalltown Supersound imprint Brown Rice and it's double-take gorgeous. Had I not known that Tyson McVey was the daughter of pop icon Neneh Cherry ("Buffalo Stance" forever amen), there's a fair chance I would've made some sort of link. It's not just that rich vocal dripping intimacies like honey – I'm just bones without you – but the shooting star percussion, moody drums and blood-rush bass. This one's a keeper.
