Palma Violets Are a Band Not to MissOctober 8th, 2013
Sam Fryer (vocals and guitar), Will Doyle (drums), Chillie Jenson (vocals and bass) and Peter Mayhew (keys) began making psychedelic-tinged garage rock as Palma Violets in 2010. Before they’d ever recorded material, the London quartet began to win over fans thanks to electrifying live shows. And once concertgoers began uploading footage to the Internet, Palma Violets (above, playing “Best of Friends” at this year’s Reading Festival) earned even more acclaim. The fervor only intensified with their debut album’s release earlier this year. BBC Music said the LP, 180 (stream it below), “suggests they’ve the potential to be unstoppable.” Trust us, this isn’t praise without merit.
