P:ano was a Canadian indie pop band formed in 1999 from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The band's members consisted of Larissa Loyva, Justin Kellam, Julia Chirka, and Nick Krgovich. P:ano's style was a diversity of musical and thematic interests as the band members played several instruments.
Nick Krgovich and Larissa Loyva started playing together in 1999, and were later joined by Justin Kellam and Julia Chirka to form a foursome. Their debut release, When It's Dark and It's Summer (zum014/hfr001) was recorded at and co-released by Hive Studios.
Their second album The Den was recorded over five months in 2003 by Colin Stewart (Destroyer, Hot Hot Heat, Radio Berlin) at The Western Front and The Hive studios. Arranged with keyboards, horns, strings and back-up vocals, the quartet's orchestral lo-fi pop is reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright.
