Palmiyeler stands for soothing melodies, cinematic landscapes and groovy beats! Unlike the majority of neo-psych bands, Palmiyeler are the proprietors of a distinct style, so familiar and at the same time so original, that makes it hard to categorize: blending garage-rock classicism with some Morricone cool, the Turkish quartet explore dark themes under a breezy Mediterranean sunny feel, the end result sounding hauntingly smooth, like Steely Dan writing for The Jesus & Mary Chain! Since their formation in the early ‘10s they demonstrated their wide spectrum of influences combined with their sheer musicality! Surf guitar licks leading to often lethargic, gospel-based tunes that recall early-Spiritualized or third-album-era Velvets, alternate with West Coast ‘70s soft-rock abandon dipped on heady sub-funky beats and soulful vocals courtesy of gifted singer Mertcan Mertbilek. This is the Palmiyeler recipe for romance and rock’n’roll: surf cool, Beatlesque genius and psych euphoria at the core of its ingredients, with the beauty of the Turkish language shining over their deep-fried Medi-cosmic! Their brand new album “Şeytan Odama Geldi” is the epitome of Palmiyeler’s songwriting; an outburst of musicality under the scope of a visual artist! Released in late 2020 on digital is out now on limited vinyl via Green Cookie Records.
