Palma Violets – ‘Tom The Drum’

Our rating:

Rough, tough and rocks like a bastard

Previously too cool for YouTube, Palma Violets have finally put a song online. Recorded live at the band’s south London hub, it’s rough, tough and rocks like a bastard. “Oh, I want to be alone” snarls frontman Sam Fryer at the start, which is perverse, because tunes like this will soon make his wish impossible.
