Behind the Scenes with PALMAS: “We’re like a song you heard growing up.”

Prev1 of 2Next

PALMAS‘ debut EP To The Valley sounds like something you would expect to hear in the Sixties on the Ed Sullivan Show, but instead, the Philly/Brooklyn-bred five-piece is bringing their vintage surf rock sound to venues like Johnny Brenda’s and Boot & Saddle. Frontman Kurt Cain has a voice like ocean waves, powerful yet natural, propelling PALMAS’ beach-like sound forward, while the band’s melodic combination of guitars and drums grounds the sound into relaxing tunes. Before their Tuesday night set in support of Surfer Blood, we met up with PALMAS at Johnny Brenda’s while they shared pre-show burgers and beers, laughing and teasing each other like a typical group of twenty-somethings.

    Sounds like a super chill band. Everything from living all over, to passing around old Beach Boys records, to practicing at Fright House, pretty cool. Love that these guys have a love for Philly Bands. I think soon they’ll be in the same category.
