Get hyped for Palma Violets, the UK's garage rock sensations on Rough Trade, who are making headlines on both sides of the pond.
"The best new band in Britain ... What we're all falling in love with in here is a sound centred around echo-laden guitars, Spiritualized-style Farfisa organ and basslines picking out instantly euphoric, simple chord sequences. Oh yeah, and singer Sam Fryer's voice - Ian McCulloch, Jim Morrison - and the way it rises into ecstatic shrieks that launch the band into similarly ecstatic psych-garage freakouts. There are already five or six awesome songs - direct, clever/simple, totally fresh'n'new-sounding fired-up rock'n'roll of the type we've been waiting for. They finish with a cover of Eddie Cochran's 'I Remember', and then everyone screams, so they play another tune that goes, "I've got a brand new song, I've got a brand new song". Except literally everyone here knows all the words already." - NME
