“a little less Guns N’ Roses and a little more Clash.” – Culture Collide
LA-based Palm Springsteen shares their latest video “She’s Got Claws” via Purple. The band explains that it’s about the “macabre sensation of someone metaphorically digging their claws into your love life”. Palm Springsteen is gearing up to release their debut LP, Trouble in Paradise, stay tuned for more details coming soon.
Palm Springsteen is a band, a moniker, a portmanteau, a person, a place, a thing, and Bez from Happy Mondays. It’s interchangeable with the word “grease”, from the song Grease, from the movie Grease. It’s Blow Pop in Space. It’s Alan Vega screaming at Peter Hook to turn up that Jesus and Mary Chain record. It’s a feeling; a combination of ethereal synth, raw guitar, and driving rhythms for an explosive aural experience.
Born in the professional hedonism of Los Angeles, Palm Springsteen draws from elements of new wave, post-punk, synth pop and, ahem, “blow pop” to create something that even E.T. would phone home about.
Ever since that sick eclipse that only looked good in Idaho and Wyoming, 2017 finds Palm Springsteen releasing two new singles, “Sister Sister” and “Hey There Cowgirl,” while working on their upcoming LP, Trouble In Paradise.
