Palma Violets songs During the 2000s and 2010s, too many British indie bands re-created and combined the sounds of past greats with too little inspiration or originality, but the Palma Violets blend their reverence for their forebears with enough vitality to make their debut album, 180, a notable one. These songs reveal a band that's brawnier than your average Brit-rock upstarts -- there's more muscle in their attack, and their raspy baritone vocals are a nice change from the reedy tenors and Ian Curtis clones that front so many of their contemporaries. To be fair, Chilli Jenson and Sam Fryer's voices often recall Bad Seeds-era Nick Cave and the Gun Club's Jeffrey Lee Pierce, but at least those are slightly more unusual touchstones; either way, the authority and heft of their singing on songs like "Tom the Drum" is refreshing. Peter Mayhew's keyboards may be the Violets' secret weapon, helping the band tackle garage rock rave-ups ("Rattlesnake Highway") and moodier post-punk ("Chicken Dippers") as the mood strikes with equal flair. Pulp's Steve Mackey produced 180 and helps the band maintain the grit of its live shows on record; this just rough enough sound emphasizes the Palma Violets' way with a rousing chorus, particularly on the former singles "Best of Friends" and "Last of the Summer Wine." Elsewhere, they sound irresistible and irrepressible on "Johnny Bagga' Donuts" and "We Found Love," and raggedly romantic on "Three Stars" and "All the Garden Birds," both of which have a poetic ebb and flow that narrowly avoids collapsing on itself. Indeed, sometimes the looseness that makes 180 so charming borders on unfocused rambling, but for the most part, the Palma Violets keep it in check on this entertaining, promising debut. ~ Heather Phares Composers: Will Doyle ; Peter Mayhew.

Palma Violets Biography

Palma Violets CD discography Artist are a four-piece band from London, made up of bassist/vocalist Chilli Jenson, guitarist/vocalist Sam Fryer, keyboardist Peter Mayhew, and drummer Will Doyle, who play their own distinct brand of psychedelic rock & roll. The band signed to indie label Rough Trade in 2012. Their first studio work came later that year when the single "Best of Friends" was released and was subsequently named NME's number one track of the year, which then propelled them to the front cover of the publication. A feverish hype swirled around the band as they secured a U.K. tour and work commenced on their debut album. ~ Scott Kerr
