TRUE PANTHER NEWS: KELSEY LU ‘CHURCH’ EP OUT JULY 8TH


There is some very exciting new from the True Panther Sounds front this morning…

Words from Dean:

Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, Kelsey Lu left home at 18 to study cello. Now based in New York, she has collaborated with, and contributed to albums from, many of her peers including Blood Orange, Kelela, Wet and Organized Noize.

The EP’s title comes from its unique recording process—Kelsey Lu recorded live in a single take at the Holy Family Roman Catholic Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with her cello, her voice and her loop pedal.

The video for “Dreams” (shown above) was directed by Alix Brown (@alixbrown).

‘CHURCH’ will be release July 8, 2016.
