We’ve got a great show for you tonight! Plenty of great new local music from a half dozen local artists and much more to play for you all on The Rising Tide. With that being said, let me introduce you to our guests for the evening, Palmz.
Palmz are a group whose sound is chiefly indebted to 50s and 60s girl group and beach pop music. Thematically, lead singer Lexie Corfiatis’ lyrics about love and loss strike a similar chord to groups like Puro Instinct, The Sandwiches, and Best Coast. However, don’t count Palmz among some of the many bands jumping onto the “back to the beach” sort of movement in modern indie rock, for this group flies it’s freak flag proudly, penning songs about aliens and paying tribute to one of rock n’ roll’s greatest institutions, The Velvet Underground, with their cover of I’ll Be Your Mirror.
Palmz will be coming onto our show to talk about their previously mentioned show taking place this Saturday at 105 Pioneer St., where they will perform alongside Rising Tide alums Blackbird Blackbird, Old Arc and Seattle’s own Seapony, as well as to talk about what 2011 holds for the group.
Tune in tonight at 7pm to hear this and more on The Rising Tide!
