Barely whispered vocals, layered instrumentation and atypical time signatures rule the roost on Panos Giannoulis’ debut, the self-titled PANOS. Giannoulis draws from his background in indie rock and his more recent involvement in avant-garde and improvised jazz, with a well-trained ear and stable of talented guests to give the album a Sufjan Stevens-esque feel. The addition of atonal elements, a healthy amount of feedback and unexpected harmonies elevate this debut to symphonic heights. Considering the relative newness of the project and the sophistication of the final product, it goes without saying that this is an act to keep an eye on.
