Gold Panda Wins Guardian First Album Award 2010

January 28, 2011 by  

London based producer, Gold Panda, has been awarded the Guardian First Album Award for debut album Lucky Shiner, beating the likes of Marina & The Diamonds, Everything Everything and Delphic.

The Guardian described the album as ‘a combination of warm, lo-fi electronica, a patchwork of crackly samples and melodies that stick’, and based its decision upon the fact that Lucky Shiner was ‘the album the panel have found themselves coming back to the most’.

In 2011 Gold Panda is set to headline East London’s XOYO and prior to the show he will release a new EP, ‘Marriage’ on the 28th February, which will be his first release since Lucky Shiner

A full UK tour will be announced very soon.
