PALMA VIOLETS * Danger in the Club (Rough Trade)

Palma Violets are releasing their eagerly awaited sophomore album Danger in the Club today Palmas Packshot SMALL.jpgvia Rough Trade.  The John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead) produced album finds the band with a new sonic looseness, revealing far more expansive influences.  Palma Violets, who NME awarded Best New Band in 2013, have gone from putting on riotous DIY gigs in their London studio to traveling the world playing to enraptured sold-out crowds and graduated to massive stages at festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury.  PRESS HERE to watch the video for “English Tongue,” which was directed by British music luminary Don Letts (The Clash, The Pretenders, Franz Ferdinand) and stars actor Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones).

Early Praise for Danger in the Club
“…maintains the earnest rockers’ boisterous guitars and frayed shouts but also twines in eerie post-punk keys, poppish call-and-response interplay and even downcast balladry. Produced by the venerable John Leckie, it’s a slyly intricate effort with a fresh sheen of sophistication.” – Rolling Stone

“Chilli Jesson and Sam Fryer’s sweat’n’spittle-drenched harmonies can’t help but recall Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, and there are loud, swaggering songs about America here, too…they reference everyone from Graham Parker to the Damned, and hurl in everything from Doorsy organs to twangy-guitared surf-rock, delivering each song with epic, music-hall rowdiness.” – The Guardian
