Band: SWEATY PALMS
Who: An auspicious Glasgow quartet causing anger, nervous energy, excitement…
Track: TRANSIT PAUL – lead single from upcoming album
Score: Here’s a menacing mid-tempo garage groove that grabs you firmly by the throat
on its turbulent way. A filthy slow burning slam with anarchic guitars going madcap while sneering vocals spit out the song’s weird story word by word. You’ll hear echoes from The Fall‘s stubborn swagger and the Fat White Family‘s subversive spirit. Hell yeah! Capture the crashing barbed wire eccentricity right here…

The band release debut album QUIT NOW on 8 June via Nice Swan Records
describing the band’s upcoming record as “a fast-paced thirty-five minutes as
idiosyncratic, iconoclastic and industrious as the city that birthed the band”.
A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven fervid strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven first-class tracks to feed body & soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Fantasy Kid’ by SYRINGE (Denmark)
A one man army from Northern Europe producing more decibels than Spacemen 3. This slashing corker injected with venomous vocals will help you to crush your ugly demons.

2/ ‘Queer Fatwa’ by SWEATY PALMS (Glasgow, Scotland)
Unstoppable Scottish 4-piece turbo with a deranged garage crackerjack. A smoking bolide fueled with agitated vocals & squeaky guitars and threatening to explode any second. Ace!

3/’What They Said’ by SILK ‘N’ OAK (Brisbane, Australia)
Imagine Mumford & Sons and Beirut having the time of their lives together. Yes, that’s how they would sound. Impassioned, irresistibly catchy and fervent. Swirling and fiery score!…

4/ ‘Aloof’ by BOKITO (London/Ireland)
After a short, kind of Sigur Ros intro it’s party time all the way. This vibrant belter will make you dance instantly with an exotic cocktail in each hand. Tropical vibes for body and soul!…

6/ ‘Derrick’ by TURQUOISE (Brussels, Belgium)
Sounds like Ennio Morricone going electro. Discover this cinematic and atmospheric synth beauty generating a relaxing feeling while you close your eyes and you float away. Blissful!

7/ ‘Beggars Belief’ by THE CULT COLLECTIVE (Birmingham/Coventry, UK)
A gripping and captivating ballad with anthemic Britpop allure. Sounds like the Gallagher brothers finally are back together, with another name as camouflage. Magnificent stroke!…
