OFFICIAL VID: Palma Violets – English Tongue

April 23, 2015

It’s been some time now since I caught English indie rock band Palma Violets live, but I still remember oh so clearly how rambunctiously good they were. While Best Of Friends will likely be a favorite Palma Violet song for much time to come, English Tongue, off their new album Danger In The Club (out May 4th on Rough Trade) is also a rollicking garage rock treat. Watch their new video for English Tongues, above.

OFFICIAL VID: Palma Violets – Rattlesnake Highway

October 3, 2013

English rockers Palma Violet sure knows how to put out rambunctious punkish garage rock tunes. They also perform some stomping shows. They channel that energy into their new video for Rattlesnake Highway via fan live footage. The song is off their debut album 180 from earlier this year. The video, which debuted on Rolling Stones today, was directed by Jesus and Mary Chain bassist Doug Hart. The two and a half minute track leaves me hungering for more. If you missed my posts raving about their single Best of Friends, you missed out. Go check it out.

OFFICIAL VID: Palma Violets – We Found Love

April 12, 2013

Last fall, I stumbled upon this great UK rock band named Palma Violets and was IMMEDIATELY taken in by their awesome song Best Of Friends. I was CONVINCED it was going to be a big hit. Since then, these guys have made a ton of giant ripples in the UK and are all set to take us on stateside. Their debut album 180 is out in the UK right now (I’m waiting for my copy to arrive). I purchased Best of Friends on limited 7" purple vinyl. And here’s their brand new video for 180 track We Found Love. Oh, and I’ve only heard GREAT things about these guys live. I’m all set to catch them later this month!

OFFICIAL VID: Palma Violets – Step Up For The Cool Cats

January 25, 2013

A few months ago, I named this English garage rock band as a band to watch. Step Up For The Cool Cats is their new single off their coming debut album 180, to be released on February 26 in the US (February 25 in the UK) on Rough Trade. I stand by what I said. The song is a rollicking rock and roll tune with a bit of that vintage classic sound that falls not too far from bands like The Vaccines, Arctic Monkeys, and many other Brit rock acts. 

I’m still super fond of the first single of theirs that put them square on the map for me, Best Of Friends. So much so, that when I saw they were releasing it as a limited edition purple 7" vinyl, I had to get it. HAD to.

Palma Violets

November 30, 2012

Hmm! This is one of those rising UK bands that took me a little while to catch wind of, but are apparently creating a healthy level of buzz already on that side of the pond. I noticed them only because NME actually chose THIS song, Best of Friends, as their number one track of the year. THAT is a very strong statement. I looked through that list and was surprised to see this song and band I’d never heard of before. And so, of course, the right thing to do was to look them up. And yes, the song sounds great. Palma Violets is a four piece indie rock band with a sound that greatly reminds me of Future Islands, Alt-J (hot band of the year?), and WU LYF, with perhaps even some Doors thrown in. And let’s not get started now on the death and breakup of WU LYF after only one album… sigh. Once you hear Best of Friends below, you’ll know why I compare them all in the same sentence. They all have that similar garage rock and psychy sound with rough, sometimes yelling, emotional vocals. It may have taken me a little while longer than usual to hear about them here in America, but there’s no doubt that Palma Violets will become a very recognizable name in 2013.

And to show you that song was no fluke, check out this other song, Last of the Summer Wine, with its grand instrumentals, deep vocals, and more of a post-punk darkwave vibe. The song is the B-side to Best of Friends, which is out as a limited single on CD and 7" purple vinyl. PURPLE VINYL. LIMITED. 7". OH BOY. Might have to find one for myself. 😉
