PALM SPRINGSTEEN SHARES “SISTER SISTER” TRACK VIA CULTURE COLLIDE PLAYING NYC @ MERCURY LOUNGE TONIGHT 9/20
LISTEN & SHARE: Palm Springsteen – “Sister Sister”
“there are hints of Strokes-era downtown New York garage, raw proto-punk moments à la Suicide, post-punk references, and plenty of New Wave-style synths.” – The Last Magazine
“music as chilled and breezy as you’d imagine it to be.” – Hero Magazine
Today, LA-based Palm Springsteen shares new track “Sister Sister” via Culture Collide, who call the song a “quintessential LA tune… a little less Guns N’ Roses and a little more Clash.” Palm Springsteen just wrapped up a US tour supporting Foster the People, and tonight will be headlining Mercury Lounge in NYC. You can purchase tickets here.
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.
