Video Premiere:


“Shadow Expert”


words by tom johnson

Bringing their warped vision to even more colourful and animated life, Palm today unveil the brilliant video to the equally confounding title-track of their latest EP, which is out now via the veritable Carpark Records, also coinciding with a whole string of live shows that kicks in to gear from tomorrow; July 19th in Texas.

Glowing, jagged, utterly unique, the band’s most recent EP, finds the Philly-based quartet in as radiant form as we’ve come to expect, delivering a set of songs that bend, and blister, and bury themselves in to the consciousness thanks to a inherent knack for carving little moments of bliss from otherwise precarious vistas. “Shadow Expert” itself is indicative of such a thing, the sub three-minute track pitching a sweet, somewhat refined vocal against a spiky backdrop of Women-esque guitars and gnarly percussion.

Adding even more wonder to the song, the new video is an inspired undertaking, an immersive animated world (directed by JP Mayer) which delivers all manner of varied landscapes as the Sims-like version of the band play on regardless.
