Palma Violets are an English band from Lambeth, London. The band formed in 2011, based on the musical partnership of frontmen Sam Fryer and Chilli Jesson.[citation needed]

The band’s musical output is primarily based around the rock genre, with some Garage rock and psychedelic influences. Their first single “Best of Friends” was voted NME’s song of the year for 2012. Palma Violets’ debut album 180 is currently scheduled for release on the 25 February 2013.

Much like Arctic Monkeys, the band gained a substantial fan base online before the release of their first single – with multiple live videos of their gigs being uploaded by fans. The band are signed to Rough Trade Records. Palma Violets have been compared to The Libertines by areas of the media, with their frontmen, Chilli Jesson and Sam Fryer, having a similar onstage relationship to Pete Doherty and Carl Barât. Palma Violets will appear on the NME Awards Tour 2013, along with Miles Kane, Django Django and Peace.
