Within the first 30 seconds of the music video for “Little Pamplemousse” you find yourself smiling, or if you’re like, uncontrollably laughing. That’s what Tijuana Panthers does for you: instantly puts you in a good mood.
The Long Beach, CA band has played both local and international stages, wooing audiences (including my mom) with their sun-soaked garage rock and irreplaceable personalities. Their newest release Carpet Denim is three years in the making, and presents the band all grown up. In the record they experiment lyrically and musically, while taking influences from Haruki Murakami to Twin Peaks.
All seriousness aside, the music video for “Little Pamplemousse” proves the band is still capable of having a lot of fun.
