A band that were being talked about in industry circles before they'd even toured and had graced the covers of magazines before even releasing a note of music, anyone who managed to catch Palma Violets' Dublin bow in Bruxelles last December will know why they're getting pulses racing. Right now, 'Best Of Friends' is their calling card, a rough-and-ready garage rocker equipped with a big-hearted, bellowed chorus and clever-clever lyric about platonic love. From Lambeth, London, the quartet's ace is the magnetic chemistry between frontmen Chilli Jesson and Sam Fryer, a relationship many have likened to that of Pete and Carl from The Libertines. With less chemicals. New single 'Step Up For The Cool Cats' is just out and is a fantastic taster of what's to come on the debut album.
Hear: the debut LP, 180, from February 22.
