An aging British Rail building - part art studio happening, part squat – Studio 180 was where south London’s Palma Violets were gestating, away from sunlight and the world at large.

For a long time if you wanted to hear the most exciting new band in Britain, you knocked on a tall black door off the Lambeth Road. An aging British Rail building - part art studio happening, part squat Studio 180 was where south London's Palma Violets were gestating, away from sunlight and the world at large. A thrilling rock'n'roll four piece channeling The Clash, ? and the Mysterians, and the Bad Seeds, from September 2011 they were holed-up here writing songs "their friends could dance to" and occasionally putting on celebratory, ecstatic parties about which word quickly spread.

Format: Audio CD
London debut--Anthemic & epic, ringing indie rock with an invigorating, vivacious strength and
resilience. Big drums, soaring keyboards, gripping guitar work, captivating baritone vocals and a
loosely psychedelic "no-fear" approach to classic arrangements all combine to make a powerful
album with a feel that is familiar, but not derivative. The band has the confident swagger of
youth and belief in the potential of each note; the kind of charisma that makes stadium rock hits
out of pub/drinking songs. Recalls bands like The Clash, The Libertines, The Veils, The Alarm,
Titus Andronicus, The Skids, The Boomtown Rats, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Almost every
song begs for repeated play. It's the kind of rockin' album that you don't' want to end.

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Palma Violets are a garage rock band, but they are not trying to relive a bygone era of music. Ditching the electronics and big beat that seem to dominate the music scene these days (including The Strokes), the Violets are a straight-forward rock band. The lyrics are not complex or profound, but that's not what I wanted from PV's. I own this on vinyl, which adds to the warm sound. As vinyls these days often do, mine came with an MP3 coupon to download the album electronically for no extra cost.

The best songs in my opinion are: We Found Love, Best of Friends, and 14. Despite having my favorites, I prefer to listen to the album front to back.

These guys are mix of all the great British music from the past. Like The Who, Clash, Small faces. It's a raw basic sound with great vocals and a solid mix of sound. Has the feeling of a live album.

Very good first effort. Looking forward to hearing them mature as songwriters. By the way, if you have a chance to catch them live DO IT NOW. They are playing small clubs and the live show is absolutely electrifying.

Palma Violets debut album is a full-tilt aural assault that pulls from punk pioneers like The Clash and The Sex Pistols. These lads are on to something here.

This is the best album by a new artist so far this year. They are fabulous in person too (I saw them at the Osheaga Music Festival in Montreal).

This band has its own character and sound, and stands on its own quite well, but, at times, it will faintly, happily remind you of The Clash.

Very solid.

Saw Palma Violets open for Franz Ferdinand. Liked their sound enough to check out their cd. No regrets. Loving their album more with every play. Reminds me a bit of the Clash. Their youth and energy reminds me of Arctic Monkeys...one of my fav bands. Enjoy!
