Toronto noise-pop outfit Fake Palms, the brainchild of singer-songwriter Michael le Riche, are back with an album announcement this week along with lead single, Satellite. The new long-player follows 2017’s Pure Mind and includes musical contributions from members of Dilly Dally, Ducks Ltd., Sauna and Twist. If this first song is any indication, we’re in for something special on the new record.
Speaking on the album, Michael explains: “This record is the most direct thing I’ve ever done. All the distorted guitars playing 16th-note riffs in different time signatures, washes of noise and buried vocals are basically gone. In their place, we made a record that’s lean and a punch to the gut.”
Watch the video for Satellite (directed by Justis Krar) in the embed below, and be sure to keep it locked to their socials. The new album Lemons is out September 16th via Hand Drawn Dracula, also home to Tallies, Young Guv and Tess Parks.
