Listen: Palm share intricate ‘Composite’ single from new album ‘Rock Island’

The band’s new album comes out on 9th February via Carpark Records, with a UK/EU tour in May and June.

Philadelphia quartet Palm are releasing their new album ‘Rock Island’ next month, and we’ve got the first play of its intricate, brilliant new single ‘Composite’.

‘Rock Island’ comes out on 9th February via Carpark Records, and ‘Composite’ is a brilliantly fidgety beast, with a helter skelter of an intro melting seamlessly into a blissful verse of hazy dream-pop. It never sits still and is all the more exciting for it.

The band are set to take ‘Rock Island’ on a UK/European tour in May and June, beginning in London at Corsica Studios on 24th May.
