The Junior Panthers create a guitar-driven wall of sound with raucous riffs and subversive lyrics. The San Francisco quartet has its roots in shoegaze punk and power pop, and can hang with the best of them. Their self-titled debut combines original hooks with influences ranging from beach-y California pop, Stones-influenced rock, hints of Bacharach, Jellyfish, and Creation Records bands such as Ride, Primal Scream, and The Jesus and Mary Chain. However, The Junior Panthers like to shake it up with their own style of dirty vintage guitar licks, driving rhythms, and melodies that'll give you a toothache.

The Junior Panthers have toured extensively and have shared the stage with The Pattern, The Soledad Brothers, Mates of State, The Stratford 4, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Mark Gardener (of Ride).
