Wild Palms new single "Deep Dive" + 2010 tour dates

Forward-thinkers Wild Palms, newly signed to One Little Indian, continue to strike while the iron is hot, announcing the release of their 2nd single "Deep Dive" on 17th May, 2010 backed with an intriguing take on Bjork's "Human Behaviour".

The new single is the first fruit from studio sessions with Gareth Jones (Grizzly Bear, Clinic, Interpol, Wire, Depeche Mode) with whom the band have been working with on their debut album, slated for a September release.

Speaking to NME at the start of February, singer Lou Hill signalled the shape of things to come, "The stuff we are writing now is a complete departure from anything scratchy or angular - it's warm and it's expansive."

Saluting Can, New FADs, Beefheart, ACR, Sonic Youth, TV On The Radio, Radiohead, MBV, Liquid Liquid, New Order and Talking Heads, Wild Palms continue an ethos that runs through from Neu! to Factory to Flowered Up, carrying with them a rough-edged charm that in no small part comes from roguishly charismatic 23 year old front man, Lou Hill.

In existence little more than a year and having just played their first London headline in February at White Heat, this new release coincides with a growing buzz on the band whose startling "Over Time" debut single released late last year served notice of original minds at work.

"Wild Palms have taken the well-worn DNA of post-punk and subverted in their own apocalyptic image." - Artrocker, Single Of The Month, January 2009
