Song: Floating in the Dark
Genre: Surf, Indie, Rock
Hailing from Philadelphia and New York, Palmas create the kind of surf rock I spend so much time searching for; slick guitars mixed with warm, soulful melodies – like a Bond theme with pop smarts.
“Floating in the Dark” shows the group’s Beach Boy‘s influences, though there is a more ominous tone in the song’s haunting harmonies. Opening with a lone horn and shivering drums, the dark surf tone is akin to an American version of The Last Shadow Puppets with a stronger interest in warm, 60’s melodies. It’s beach music for people who enjoy going to the beach at night.
