Burning Palms Premiere “Young Hunter”

Burning Palms Premiere "Young Hunter", Releasing Debut self-titled LP on October 14th via lolipop

Although they are relatively new to Tucson’s growing music scene, Burning Palms are fast becoming the next local export soon be on everyone’s radar. With aesthetic roots in American gothic literature, post punk, and 60’s garage (the band cites influences ranging from Nick Cave to Bauhaus to Patti Smith and even more contemporary punk stalwarts in the late Jay Reatard), Burning Palms tiptoe the threshold of punchy psych-rock and seductive whimsy.

Burning Palms’ leading force Simone Stopford (Vox, Guitars) began the band as a solo bedroom project in Sydney, Australia. Her studies led her to the Arizona desert in hopes of becoming a yoga instructor, and upon discovering the area’s vibrant music scene, she decided to stick around and assemble a gang of like minded souls. Stopford found a kindred spirit in Julia Deconcini (Vox/ Percussion) and from there added Thomas Sloane (Lead Guitar) Nate Gutierrez (Bass) and Elliot Silva (Drums) to complete the line up of Burning Palms.

“Young Hunter” — the first single from the band’s forthcoming self-titled debut LP that’s out 10/14 on Lolipop Records. The band will be touring nationally, beginning next week on 10/9 in El Paso, making their way to NYC for CMJ performances (TBA) and returning home just before Thanksgiving. Dates are below.
