"I see Panda as one of the most promising female artists
working with electronics. In large part because she breaks
down several forms of habitual thinking. (...) Even though
you could call her narrative miniatures 'electroclash' she
is just as much a rock musician (out of the punk school) and
storyteller. (...) There's no excuse not to discover this
totally unique and very promising artist right now."
- Cd review by Danish independent music magazine Geiger.
"Italian multiartist Zelda Panda (what a fantastic
name!) throws herself headlong out in deep waters only equipped
with a out-of-tune guitar, toykeyboard and the amateur musician's
inresistable drive. (...) There is definitely potential in
her sensual voice, naive rhythm box and guitarbased melodies,
which in the records best moments leads the thoughts towards
the clattering indietronica of Casiotone For Painfully Alone.
This is especially caused by her fine lyrics about life's,
and especially love's, ups and downs. Tracks like the duet
Ecke, where she gets help from fellow Italian Marco Brosolo's
Cohen-ish voice, deserves a wider audience."
- Cd review by Gaffa,
Denmark's biggest music magazine.
"In reality you don't really need more than an Italian
60s guitar, a loop-pedal and a toy keyboard. Definitely not
if you have Zelda Panda's musicality. (...) She calls herself
Marzipan Marzipan. And it is also the title of her new outstanding
album. It's an album that seems inspired by Berlin's chilly
sensuous and cool lyrical do-it-yourself songwriter style
of artists such as Masha Qrella and Barbara Morgenstern. But
as Marzipan Marzipan Zelda Panda has her very own personal
and quite sensual twist."
- Cd review by Ralf Christensen, P2
Radium, Danish National Radio.

guitars, fx and electronic instrumentation. Lurching from
the semi-harsh to the playfully melodic."
