Palmas is hitting their stride with their eye on the bigger picture. The "psych/soul" band took some time to reflect on their song writing after the release of their single, "Flowers," which set the tone for the band’s future approach. "Flowers opened up our mind to expand on instrumentation in the studio."

After supporting the likes of Whitney, Twin Peaks, Vacationer and others, the group has taken a moment away from playing live to focus on new material. With new songs and a new live show, 2018 looks to be a promising year for Palmas
The Teen Age
Formed in a Bushwick, Brooklyn basement in late 2012, The Teen Age play a mix of 70′s-inspired punk and garage rock, with a nod to classic doo-wop and 60's pop influences. Think the CBGB's grit of the Dead Boys or the drunken-swagger of the Black Lips, mixed with the sing-a-along pop hooks of the Marvelettes or Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers.

The Teen Age made their live debut in 2013 supporting the UK's Palma Violets, and released their first single "Ventura" (recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn) on PaperCup Music in July 2013. This was followed later that summer by their second single, "Matador," and in 2014 with their debut EP Ways To Adapt, both on PaperCup Music. Over the past couple of years, the band has shared stages with acts like Twin Peaks, Diarrhea Planet, Wytches, Total Slacker, Big Ups, Crocodiles & more, and performed at SXSW, Savannah Stopover, L Magazine's Northside Festival and CMJ.

The band has now teamed up with Old Flame Records for the release of their new Low Cunning 7", which features the brand new single bundled with b-side "Pieces." The 7" will be released on April 7th, and The Teen Age plays a release show at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium that night.
The Pretty Greens
The Pretty Greens
The Pretty Greens channel an unapologetic call to social justice and inequality reform enlisting inspiration from the likes of Brill Building pop, wild and dreamy garage, dark surf, and punk rock. With appreciative nods to the fast and loose clamorous punk-pop of Bratmobile and the garage rock of Nikki and the Corvettes, the band also mixes in the off-kilter and raucous attitude of groups like The Raincoats, and The Slits.

Pretty Greens will release their brand new cassette EP, "Lonely Hearts Club - No Jerks Allowed" in late April on Negative Fun Records (Ghostt Blonde, Positive No, Daddy Issues).
