Spacey but not alienating, loud yet still light, painting panoramic sound against a moving melodic backdrop, Moving Panoramas make dream rock from Austin, Texas.
It all began in Brooklyn, where songwriter Leslie Sisson lived for nearly a decade while playing in a number of touring bands. She came back to her home state of Texas to be near her family while navigating through a series of life-changing events. This led to an array of songs that shaped the birth of the band. The debut LP 'One' released via Modern Outsider Records in 2015 conjured a wave of dream gaze and international acclaim.
Moving Panoramas break the shell of 'One' veritably 'In Two' with the new sophomore LP available via Modern Outsider 2/22/19, expanding room for more diversity, rhythm, volume, instrumentation such as the swimmy pedal steel, plus special guests Matthew Caws of Nada Surf & Sabrina Ellis of A Giant Dog/Sweet Spirit. Over the years, the band's lineup featured a moving cast of magical busy talent but has luckily landed on the incredibly solid current Baby Blues crew with Cara Tillman, Rosie Castoe, Jordan Rivell, Jody Suarez, & Phil McJunkins.
