Hello Palm Reader!

Feb 14

Woking based band Palm Reader, describe their musical genre as ‘lairy’, we caught up with PR vocalist Josh to discuss music, DIY ethics and Valentines day!

Josh, vocalist of Palm Reader, hello! Welcome to the Small Town Family! We’re thrilled to have you aboard! On a scale of 1-Stoked, how stoked are you for your album to be released?

Too excited for words or numbers!

What’s the album title and what can fans expect from it? 
The album title is Bad Weather. As a band, we like to think we’ve done something that people wouldn’t really expect. There are quite a few things on this album that we’ve never done before, we pushed ourselves.
 
You’re about to embark on a tour with your friends Polar. I see you’re playing a show on Valentines day, do you have any romantic plans after the show? Or will it be a lonely night of Jagermeister and Pornography?
Yeah, we leave tomorrow. We’re really looking forward to these dates, Polar. are good friends of ours and for some fucking stupid reason we’ve never been on tour with them! As for romantic plans? I’ve got my sights set on Woody (vocals) from Polar.
 
As you’re new to the #SmallTownFamily we should explain a little about the roots of Palm Reader. How long have you boys been a band for?
Palm Reader started in early 2011. We’ve done nothing but work our balls off to do what we want with our lives since then. In other words, we haven’t taken the easy route. That’s what we’re about. We’re reading our own palms. We’ve played a fuck-bunch of unforgettable shows with some incredbile bands, we’ve recorded and released a self-titled ep, played more shows, done a few videos and toured a fair amount too.
We’re just excited to push things further/as far as they can go.
Who was your childhood musical hero?
I’d say Michael Jackson. Fuck the piss-takers, I don’t think anyone can deny the impact he’s had on music.
 
Best thing about being in a band? And worst thing about being in a band?
Best thing: I get to do the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do with four of the most rad people I know.

Worst thing: realising that sometimes that’s the only good thing.
Catch Palm Reader on their tour with Polar. at any of the following dates. Keep posted to the Small Town Records pages for more details on Palm Readers upcoming album. Stay Classy San Diego!
