The Pantones
The Pantones.jpg

An all-girl Los Angeles based quartet consisting of two

bass players and a drum machine whose influences are

cited in genres such as post-punk, 80s new wave, and

indie pop. An EP of demos was released by these

teenagers in autumn of 2017, with melodies reminiscent

of sounds ranging from the light britpop of The Stone

Roses' debut album to the moody basslines and gloomy

synths of Joy Division and New Order's earlier

material. With Johnny Marr-esque sparkling guitar riffs

and dreamy vocals, comparisons to bands such as The

Smiths and The Cure can be made through their demos

(which were recorded in a bedroom and a high school

classroom).
