Palma Violets are currently on a whirlwind premier U.S. tour, hitting all the major demographics with a couple of banner festival sets at Coachella for good measure. On Tuesday, they will pull into SF for a headline bill at The Independent along with the Cults/Willowz off-shoot, which goes by the name of Guards.
Hailing from Lambeth, England, Palma Violets are a relatively new act creating their unique brand of garage-influenced rock. Tinges of psychedelia, coupled with the occasional organ flourish, add a refreshing depth to this new spin of the sound that made the world go crazy for the Arctic Monkeys a decade ago.
This traditional four-piece band garnered a wave of attention at the end of 2012, largely fueled by the breakout single “Best of Friends”. 180 is a charming rock LP that is sure to catch some ears in the coming months as the buzz swirls around these young lads.
