Gold Panda and Jas Shaw from Simian Mobile Disco have teamed up for a new project.
Under the moniker Selling, the duo have today dropped a new album called ‘On Reflection’. It’s streaming online now, with a physical edition following on 14th December via City Slang.
“We didn’t make this for a label or something,” says Derwin Dicker (aka Gold Panda). “Initially, it was just us mucking around. There was no plan to make an album. Originally I thought we were going to make a track here and there and stick them out on vinyl. But then, we had an album that sounded quite good and it was like ‘well if we have an album’s worth of stuff, maybe we should just release it’. It became a thing, I suppose.”
“But we’ll quit if it becomes a smash hit record.”
They’ve also shared a video for the track ‘keeping txme’. “It was the 15th or 16th track we made but it was the first track where we did it and it felt finished as soon as we were done,” they explain. “And then it was like, ‘this is good, let’s do more.”
