London’s Palma Violets start month long US tour


London’s Palma Violets return to the US tomorrow to kick off a month long run of shows on their first proper tour of America.

With their critically acclaimed debut album 180 (Rough Trade) currently sitting atop the FMBQ radio charts thanks to a rapturous reception for first single “Best Of Friends”, Palma Violets take to Coachella’s Mojave Tent stage tomorrow evening in what’s sure to be one of the steamiest performances of the festival. In their characteristically dynamic style the band will be performing in the LA area every night between the two Coachella weekends before taking their show across the country.

From our album review of ‘180’ :

The throaty, Brit-slacker chops of Jesson and guitarist/singer Sam Fryer are key to ’180′s success – both possess honest, hearty voices which make even the most elementary lyrics seem knowing and poignant.
‘180’… it’s one of the better indie rock debuts you’ll hear this year, that’s for sure
