EP: Peter Panthers
Release Date: February 8, 2017
Genre: Punk, garage
The edgy new self-titled release by Dartmouth punk rockers Peter Panthers is most definitely not one to listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The four song EP is packed with fire, punch and a vocal style that verges on the aggressive.
Peter Panthers began as “Loving Problems” but with the addition of Coco Marie’s vocals into the mix, the name Peter Panthers has stuck. Originally released in February, the EP was re-mixed and released in April for your enjoyment free on bandcamp.
The entire EP has a very punk rock feeling that is somewhat reminiscent of the 80’s UK punk scene, particularly the fourth track “Party Crashers” with many elements that bring back a feel of the Sex Pistols, Jilted John or even Operation Ivy. The EP feels raw, almost giving the listener a taste of a live show which, for the style of music, many listeners would appreciate; however, for those who prefer a more polished sound, this EP may end up being a little unrefined.
Peter Panthers have been tearing it up along the East Coast this summer so if you are in the mood for an amped up, vibrant show with a retro feel, definitely check this band out.

My name is Megan and I’m an alcoholic. No, wait, that’s not right…I am however from the UK, love to travel, surf, take photos, listen to music, write, run, laugh and, well… live. I played the cello from around eight and joined small orchestras soon after. I’ve never been very good, but I loved the complexity and diversity of classical music. Not surprisingly, my appreciation of music ranges from anything from Dvorak to AC/DC or Ben Howard to Above and Beyond; all has its place in my collection. My creativity has now found new escapes, this time in the forms of photography and writing. Combining my new creative outlets with music at Canadian Beats is a great way for me to explore another element of my adopted country – it’s music.
