Two years on from the release of their debut album 180, Palma Violets make a welcome return with their latest single ‘Danger in the Club’. This track precedes the release of their much anticipated upcoming album of the same name on May 4. Undoubtedly one of the best indie bands operating out of the UK at the moment, the return of Palma Violets is welcoming news to any of their fans. Released by Zane Lowe as one of his ‘future exclusives’ on BBC Radio One, the track clearly shows the band have not lost any of their youthful and chaotic sound.
Beginning with their familiar psychedelic 60s sounding guitar riffs, before the moody punk vocals of Samuel Fryer and ‘Chilli’ Jesson kick in to create a sound fitting to their pop-punk, garage rock, indie status. The track builds in momentum, with its rowdy lyrics of ‘’he’s the danger in the club’’ along with their choppy punk guitar riffs, as well as some harmonica thrown in for good measure, before finally the track lulls into a calm and gentle closure. Altogether create a sound fitting to the bands style, while still having a sense of progression from their previous releases. Certainly they are a band whose energetic style thrives in live performances, definitely one to watch out for this year.
Their second studio album Danger in the Club is due to be released on May 4.
