It’s not often a band gets on the cover of NME when their debut single is still a fortnight away from release. It’s even rarer that they live up to the excitement. Palma Violets do. Operating somewhere between the two extremes of hype and heroism; dishing out an album that sounds half like a roguish and ramshackle 60’s garage band and half blistering rock and roll. Every song has energy, power and presence. Debut album on Rough Trade, 180, is named after the number of the lambeth house that the four-peice have become known for throwing parties and impromptu gigs and for fans and friends in.
For fans of The Modern Lovers, The Libertines and early Clash.
