The Unique And Swarming Dark-Pop Of Palm Trees In Moscow
A new single from Palm Trees In Moscow is a refreshing and edgy genre-bender as the track fuses an alternative rock feel with a deam-esque soundscape and takes electronic beats and guitars along side emotionally driven vocals.
"Blood In Water" is a cinematic and takes elements of indie-pop that swims around you with chorus affected guitars and scattered notes that keep everything afloat.
It's easy to get washed away with the whole feel of this track and it's catchy, outside the box chorus and hooks.
This single is unique in the way that it takes a multitude of textures and melts them together as the song goes on giving the feeling of a building arrangement and it all showcases a youth in songwriting that pushes the envelope.
There are little boundaries set and walls are down. The song isn't following an average everyday format and this gives it a head turning factor.
There is something about this that can stop you mid conversation to give it a better listen or go find out what this is.
You don't come by songs like that super often and it's eye opening in terms of what the future of music can and just may sound like.
It's different. It's risky but alive and breathing.
Songs that are new that aren't afraid to go places that feel freeing.
This is the type of music you hope for in this day and age.
We've heard plenty of alternative rock and some damn good bands but it's more fun to hear something that surprises you. That, after a few moments, infects you and makes you stay for more.
Palm Trees In Moscow takes that entire aspect of songwriting and pinpoints it enough to grab hold and really listen.
"Blood In The Water" is fun, and has an almost lighthearted undertone just beneath the dark-pop surface that peeks through from time to time.
So here's to music with less boundaries. Here's to music that crawls under your skin in the best ways possible.
Here's to Palm Trees In Moscow.
