After recently sharing “Lifted”, the second single from his forthcoming debut PAGAN, London’s Palmistry is back today to share a visual for the song. The self-directed video finds Palmistry (born Benjy Keating) continuing his tradition of visuals featuring motorized vehicles (each of the videos for his trio of singles for Mixpak — “Catch”, “Protector SE5” and “Memory Taffeta” — featured a motorcycle or car).
Palmistry is the project of London-based musician Benjy Keating. A vocalist and producer with a singular vision and voice, Palmistry makes hybridized pop music that is both distinctly new and yet, like the best songwriting, sounds instantly familiar. As the producer, writer and performer of his debut LP, PAGAN is a succinct showcase of his holistic approach to contemporary pop, where melancholy and euphoria share equal space and sonic decisions resonate as much as the emotions that run through it. Beyond the music, Palmistry gives us a multi-layered experience – working alongside talented collaborators to build his own visual world through artwork, photography and film.
PAGAN is the sum of Palmistry’s experience and influence which, despite having its feet firmly placed in London, is global in its outlook. Elements of R&B, dancehall and more experimental electronic music combine forces with his distinctive voice and the vivid poetry of his songwriting.
