Pania

Pania

Raised in the cultural melting pot of West Melbourne, Pania didn’t need to go looking far to seek out inspiration. But whilst her sound may reference the creative melting pot that is her home city, her vision is truly global. Whilst her music is intensely personal, it speaks of a universal experience – one that’s destined to take it to the world.

Deeply influenced by her heroes Usher and Drake, Pania takes her lead from the romantic nostalgia of 2000s R&B, and the late-night, lonely soundscapes favoured by OVO producers – melding them into her own fresh, soul-stirring sound. Debut single Icyy (2020) was a magnetic slow-burner that earned widespread praise.

Soon after, Pania was fronting an Adidas Originals campaign centred upon West Melbourne’s buzzing creative community. Icyy Pt. 2, featuring Keziah, blew the lid right off her career. Now in 2022, Pania is gearing up for the release of her first EP, crafted with homegrown producer Hamley. The future has arrived.
