Review of Palm Ghosts’ single ‘Bells’: very 80s, dreamy, dark pop

Palm Ghosts

Rock At Night just listened to Nashville-based Palm Ghosts’ single “Bells” and WOW!  It hearkened me back to the dark post-punk and 80s music I grew up with! I love it when a Millennial band captures the sound of that era, which was rich of electro-infused, dreamy, dark pop.  “Bells” makes me think of Tears for Fears or perhaps some of the emo bands from the early-1990s.  “Bells” appeals to both the underground audience of clubbers but also could have some cross-over appeal to save us from the bland alt-rock hits played on FM radio. I can’t wait to hear the full album–whenever it should come out!

Palm Ghosts has actually been around for awhile, having self-released three records before signing on with Golden Robot Records.  Their third album and last release Architecture (2017) showed the band’s sound had found its home in the self-described “dreamy psych pop” area, however, it sounds pure gloriously New Wave to me.

PALM GHOSTS is Joseph Lekkas, Ben Douglas, Jason Springman and Rene Lambert.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. I travel between the US and UK seeking my dream! My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
