The Palms - Push Off

12/05/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Two of these dudes used to play in Terraplane Sun, a disbanded alt-pop group pretty famous for a Chilli's commercial. The Palms is a semi-reincarnation of that sound, only with a cooler website and very hot promo pics. I have to say I'm chugging the Kool-Aid like it's the annual Christmas party at Jonestown. They exude the same kind of attitude as Arctic Monkeys or the 1975***, and if any interviews of them existed, I would spend at least 2 hours watching on YouTube. And stalking them on Instagram. Not to mention the actual music: "Push Off" rules. A great slow-burning poprock(s) jam. Ben Rothbard's compelling voice (reminds me of Jake Bugg a little bit), casually delivers menacing lyrics for 4 minutes, accompanied only by light guitar and drums. Seth Cohen would be all over this shit. We are.

***or at this point, Harry Styles. Let's be honest. #miniMickJagger
