While indie-pop confection Panda Riot started out as a duo, the now four-piece has just gotten better with each edition. Formed in Philadelphia but now based out of Chicago, the band has swelled with success in the Windy City’s indie music scene. They’re thoroughly modern, but the influence that ’90s British electronic music has had on the band is apparent. With that said, over the years the band has developed an appreciation for musicians over technology. After heavy reliance on drum machines, the band sought out current drummer Jose Alejandro Rodriguez, whose abilities have added a much more organic feel to the band’s sound.
