Palma Louca is a relatively new five piece gaze-rock quintet from England.
Getting together last year Palma Louca released their début single – Disparity – last week.
The deployment of three six string guitars could lead to an anticipation of volume and ferocity though such thoughts would be heading in to the wrong direction altogether as even with the addition of bass and percussion and volume turned up as far as it will advance the speakers merely ripple as Palma Louca deliver their mesmerising compositions.
Disparity winds through the room in beguiling flows of interweaving guitars that filter through the ears as though an apparition, discernible yet intangible, and no matter which set of dynamic range is set on the amplifier the notes and chords will always dissipate just out of reach. The bass and percussion afford the song its shaded outline while an echoed vocal floats in its own misty gauze.
For now, if you happen to be in and around Newcastle Upon Tyne I suggest spending time in their company as they appear sporadically on-stage – to be a memory to relay in the years to come as by then, if justice be served, the international stadium tickets will not only be too pricey but also too inaccessible.
