IDAHO - The Palms EP
114 W. 26th St. 11th Floor, New York, NY 10001
Far from a corn fed midwest band this L.A. duo turn out music with a haunting darkness reminiscent of American Music Club or early Xymox. This talented duo features suave vocals surrounded by swirling ghosts of sounds stiffly backed by a formidable force, cleverly and confidently executed to form emotionally stirring songs. “The Palms” sounds more at home as an Oliver Stone’s Twin Palms soundtrack than as a product of its potato pickin’ namesake.
