Palm Share The Chaotically Brilliant "Ankles" + Announce November Tour Dates

Philadelphia via Hudson Valley, NY quartet Palm are sharing their new single "Ankles" via The FADER, a song the site complimented by calling it, "rhythmically perverse, melodically convoluted". This is the sort of world that Palm live in, one that is complex and challenging, forever shifting direction and undeniably rewarding. The band's full length debut Trading Basics is due out on November 6th via Inflated Records / Exploding In Sound, a behemoth of uncompromising post-punk and experimental art rock, brilliantly created and envisioned as a true collaboration between each member of Palm. Unpredictable music for unpredictable times.

The FADER offered the exclusive premiere of "Ankles," the second track to see a release from Trading Basics. Speaking about the song and the band's reputation for being a "must see" live act, The FADER shared, "There's a definite magnetism that comes with sidestepping conventions, which Palm does a lot here, with a hypnotizing energy. The track, premiering below, is ultimately full of so many clever turns that it's tough to imagine them ever playing it the same way twice."

Speaking about "Ankles," Kasra Kurt (vocals/guitar) offered some insight:

"We wrote “Ankles" after recording the rest of the album. Compositionally it worked with some ideas that we’d been talking about a little, namely: i. stuttering, imperfect loops, ii. working outside the confines of traditional rhythmic organization, iii. having the drums truly play lead. But it wasn't worked out in advance. The song came together super quickly - a true collaborative effort. Lyrically, “Ankles" is basically a rip-off of Queen’s "I Want to Break Free”. “Ankles" is also the only track on the album recorded by our friend Paco Cathcart (Big Neck Police/The Cradle).”
