Band put '180' online for fans ahead of official release
Palma Violets are their debut album ‘180’ online. Scroll down to hear the album now.
Titled ‘180’ after the number of the house in Lambeth in London where the band have thrown impromptu gigs and parties, the band’s debut is set for release on February 25, 2013 on Rough Trade.
The album features the single ‘Best Of Friends’, which was voted Number One in NME’s Best Tracks of 2012. Speaking about topping the poll, Palma Violets’ Chili Jesson told NME: “That’s amazing, that’s fucking cool. It’s such a rough, raw song. We wrote it one day and recorded it the next, so it was all pretty quick. That song is at its freshest point. Every note we’re hitting, like, no one really knows what they’re playing. It’s tongue-in-cheek.”
The tracklisting to ‘180’ is as follows:
‘Best Of Friends’
‘Step Up For The Cool Cats’
‘All The Garden Birds’
‘Last Of The Summer Wine’
‘Tom The Drum’
‘Johnny Bagga’ Donuts’
‘I Found Love’
