Biography

Hailing from Baltimore, Noah Benjamin Lennox, also known as Panda Bear, is an experimental musician and a founding member of Animal Collective. As a teen, Lennox began listening to electronic music styles such as house and techno and artists such as Aphex Twin, all of which became a huge influence on his later work. He recorded and performed music – solo and with friends. Lennox started using the name “Panda Bear” because he drew pictures of pandas for the artwork of his recordings. The Beach Boys always come up when talking about Panda Bear, and not just because he shares their fondness for certain melodic turns: When he allows the reverb to blanch his voice, Lennox can sound uncannily like Brian Wilson.
