Palm Announce New Album ‘Nicks and Grazes’, Share Video for New Single

    Palm – the Philladelphia-based band composed of drummer Hugo Stanley, bassist Gerasimos Livitsanos, and guitarist-vocalists Eve Alpert and Kasra Kurt – have announced their new album. Nicks and Grazes, the follow-up to 2018’s Rock Island, arrives October 14 via Saddle Creek. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘Feathers’, which is accompanied by a Daniel Brennan–directed video. Check it out below and scroll down for the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.

    “‘Feathers’ went through a few drafts – I was initially playing a plodding line on the bass guitar but something about the arrangement wasn’t working,” Livitsanos explained in a press release. “It was only once I switched to bass synth that there was a strong enough center for the atonal guitar and synth pads to make sense. The first one we tracked in the studio, ‘Feathers’ became an undanceable dance song at the last minute.”

    Nicks and Grazes marks the first time Palm have worked with a producer, Matt Anderegg. “With this record one might assume that we were slowly building a house brick by brick, but it’s more like we were gathering and experimenting with different types of materials for the first couple of years, and then we built the house somewhat quickly,” Stanley commented. “It’s hard to overstate Matt’s role in bringing everything together.”
