Generally, I’m not that into indie bands. I find a lot of stuff in the genre a bit boring, samey sounding. However, Palma Violets aren’t your ordinary indie band. Because Palma Violets are INCREDIBLE live. Their energy on stage is electric and completely contagious. And the lead singer sings like the guy from the National. Plus they’ve got this song called ‘You make me feel like I’m the only one’ (see video below) which I’m sure Rough Trade are saving and waiting to drop as the primary single from the debut record at the start of next year sometime.
Palma Violets will be one of the most interesting bands to watch for the next year. Will they flop like past hyped indie bands (Spector, Mona, Brother etc.) or will they reign strong, showing that they are in fact a bit different from the rest.
