Collectively it's almost 10 minutes of psych-pop
This year, Australia’s King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are aiming to release a quintet of new LPs in just 12 months. Like KG&LW, Palm Honey are a psych-pop band. They borrow from a similar sonic palette, but really the comparisons end there. Except, the Reading foursome’s latest track (divided into two parts), does something of a Gizzard, in that it ambitiously collects what’re probably three songs into one – albeit split – piece of work. Maybe they’re the chapters: starving, hysterical, naked.
Anyway, the title of the track is an ode to Allen Ginberg’s poem Howl. It’s the follow-up to their recently released track ‘Hot Simian Weather’, which came accompanied with a grotesque video.
There’s no doubt ‘Starving Hysterical Naked, Part 1&2’ is their most sprawling work to date. All together just shy of 10 minutes.
‘Starving Hysterical Naked’ comes out via Untitled Recs on 29 September. Pre-order the 7″.
Some shows Palm Honey have coming up:
London, The Waiting Room – 20 September
Southampton, Heartbreakers – 30
Reading, Rising Sun Arts Centre – 6 October
