We proudly present the latest dish on our smorgosbord: PALPITATION.
Palpitations self-titled, and first full-length album, are shimmering pop arrangements with soft edges. The daydreaming the album inevitably give rise to oscillate between a peaceful and quiet desperation of a steaming desperation. Desolate electric guitars, one rigid post-punk drum machine and bittersweet, heartbreaking lyrics performed by Maria Vejdes warped, swaying voice fills each track with an astonishing variety although there is a coherent style throughout the album. The epic grandeur that characterizes Jesus and Mary Chain “Just Like Honey” are consistently here as well, embedded in melancholy that breathes Cocteau Twins. And the closing ‘In Five Years “, with its airy vocals and muffled pop melody, will be as engaging as it haunts the listener in five years as does today. This is good stuff folks – This is pop with a throbbing heart. Dig in.
