Panda People: Overflow (Featuring Jonas H. Petersen)

Fridolin Nordsø + Julius Aas in NYC

Fridolin Nordsø aka producer Nilo + Julius Aas aka producer/dj Ligron make up brand-new Danish/Norwegian duo Panda People, formed only this year. Friends since childhood, the two have worked with stellar Danish artists such as Mø, Oh Land, Choir of Young Believers, Fallulah, Mads Langer, and more.

Fridolin Nordsø also happens to be the son of Mikkel Nordsø who was the stellar guitarist in Sneakers, one of Denmark´s all time best rocks bands. With his twin brother Frederik Nordsø as well as Kristian Leth he also found time in 2008 to form The William Blakes; fourth member Bo Rande was added later.

Panda Peoples' ambitious plan is to release one single a month plus remixes. The first single "Accidentally" featured American singer-producer-songwriter Brandon Beal who has collaborated with Lukas Graham, among others.

The second single "Overflow" features Danish singer-songwriter Jonas H. Petersen who started his acclaimed solo project Hymns From Nineveh in 2007.

The studio version of "Overflow" combines future bass & pop with Petersen's indie-meets-altar boy vocals to such a heavenly effect it might make angels weep, not to mention boogie 'til the break of dawn.

The stunning acoustic version of "Overflow" performed by Petersen solo (with older b/w photos of Denmark's long-reigning Queen Margrethe and her French-born prince consort Henri aka Prince Henrik watching) strips the song down to its beautiful basics, sounding very much like the quintessential Hymns From Nineveh composition.     

Panda People do not have any shows scheduled at this point. 

However, you can catch Petersen with his Hymns From Nineveh live band at two Christmas concerts:
First up: Saturday, December 2 @ 7 pm at the Christianskirken, Frederikshaldsgade 15, 8200 Århus N.
Second show: Saturday, December 9 @ 8 pm at the Christians Kirke, Strandgade 1, 1401 Copenhagen K.
