Painted Palms | Nothing Lasts Long EP

June 22, 2013 at 12:21 am 1 comment

“If you’ve got a thing to say, say it now,” begins the first track, “Hypnotic”, off Painted Palms‘ latest six-song EP beauty released via Secretly Canadian. The San Francisco duo’s (cousins Reese Donohue and Chris Prudhomme) record-opener is an energetic, danceable electronic track with soaring guitars, and melodic pop psychedelics. Where their song “Not Really There” feels like a tripped-out nursery-rhyme, “Upper Floors” (which also has a remix recently created by Yalls) is an electronically driving journey (think Charlatans UK) into a sort of reverse version of The Cure, where brightening synth, Indian exotics, and exhilarating rhythms carry the day with vocals that sound slightly like they’re sung in Robert Smith’s shadow. It’s wonderful music really, catchy, uplifting and passionate. Follow the duo at twitter. — David D. Robbins Jr.
