Kodiak Park

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Kodiak Park

Kodiak Park - "How funny? A park with this bear name in a town called Bear in a region that really has no bears." That’s how irony became a band name for our recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner. We had a chance to catch up with frontman John Panasuk to learn more about the fledgling Philly pop-psych project, which you can read about HERE. You can also take a listen and download the group’s new scorching single, “Holy Ghosts,” for free below.
 

   

Kodiak Park Got That Rock 'n' Soul Thang at KFN July 13

Kodiak Park has got that rock 'n' soul thang goin' on. In the group's debut singles, you'll hear a band building on a sound that could bring them to larger rooms. With frontman Jon Panasak's charismatic vocals and a suave-sounding backing unit, Kodiak Park is hinting that radio-friendly psych-pop is alive and well in Philly. They've already teased that a new single, "Holy Ghost," will be unveiled this evening at Kung Fu Necktie. You'll also find Miami's Heavy Drag (who I definitely am feelin'), Brooklyn's Such Hounds, and Philly's own R.R. Perkins in the mix. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, +21 - H.M. Kauffman
